NICVA Ethnic Minority Sector Brexit Roundtable Event
This is the latest in a series of Brexit roundtable events which NICVA has been organising to inform voluntary and community sector organisations about different aspects of Brexit and hear your concerns so that we can reflect these in our engagements with government and others.
