Locally a number of partnership meetings are regularly taking place in preparation for Brexit.
Things that the sector need to consider are:
Supporting the Vulnerable – it is likely that if there are delays in goods, or price increases (food/medicine etc) that the most vulnerable in our society will feel the effects first. With this in mind a local event is being planned for early October to bring together VCS groups to discuss, plan and think about what resources might be needed if the situation becomes difficult. Date to follow asap.
If you trade any goods or services with the EU you may need to think about equipment or goods that you have on site that relies on parts or a third party e.g. printer/computer part, car/minibus part etc. It would be worth organisations completing a risk assessment taking into consideration their own chains of distribution and supply.
You need also need to take action if you:
- export goods to the EU
- import goods from the EU
- transport goods by road
- export animals or animal products
EU citizens living in the United Kingdom this may affect service users or staff. Check what you need to do to stay in the UK.
