The Future of Regional Development Funding Post Brexit
Wales has received significant investment from the EU Structural Funds. It’s helped us support people into work, encouraged business growth and funded world leading research, but it’s not without its faults. UK Government has set out its intention to develop a successor fund – the Shared Prosperity Fund – but what does this mean for Wales?
It’s really important that the third sector offers its perspective on what it thinks Wales needs. WCVA’s Third Sector European Team (3-SET) is hosting a series of consultation events to ask your views on what’s required of any successor fund. Join us to have your say:
The agenda for the sessions is as follows:
- Regional investment in Wales after Brexit: Rob Halford, Wels Government.
- Regional policy post 2020 – priorities for the third sector: Phil Fiander, WCVA.
- Employability Plan: Edwyn Williams, Welsh Government.
- Consultation exercise – questions and discussion.
