NICVA Calls on Chancellor to Devolve Post-Brexit Funding to NI

19 Nov 2020 Geoff Nuttall    Last updated: 20 Nov 2020

NICVA and its sister Councils in Scotland and Wales have jointly written to the UK Chancellor calling for the devolution of the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (designed to replace EU funding) to ensure it meets local needs 

With their joint letter, the three Councils enclosed a joint position statement setting out five key principles they believe need to be applied in rolling out the UKSPF regarding the level of funding, its focus, its delivery, and its accessibility to applicants.  The full statement can be read here

This is the latest in series of actions NICVA has been undertaking to highlight and reflect the concerns which NI voluntary and community organisations have been raising regarding the imminent loss of, and urgent need to replace EU funding such as the European Social Fund Programme; a vital source of funding to support thousands of vulnerable people to integrate into society and labour market.  NICVA is continuing to raise these concerns and to advocate for the effective replacement and where possible retention of access to EU funding support programmes post-Brexit.
