After Brexit: a plan for Wales

Economy A union jack and EU flag
ProjectsMay 30th, 2017

Article 50 was triggered on 29th March 2017, heralding an unprecedented process of economic and social change for businesses, public services and the community adjust to life after Brexit.

It is crucial that businesses, workers, the Welsh Government, other public bodies and the third sector are ready and able to respond to the challenges that Brexit will present, whatever they may be.

To date, there has been relatively little discussion about how public policy in Wales should respond. Already other parts of the UK are looking in detail at how best they can prepare for Brexit – if Wales is not to be left behind we need a plan of action too.

The Bevan Foundation is partnering with several organisations to host a series of half-day forums over the coming year, bringing together expert analysis with key stakeholders, leaders and innovators to identify essential new or revised public policies. The forums will cover a range of policy areas including employment and skills, housing and construction and regional policy, and form the basis of a plan for Wales.

We are delighted to confirm that partnerships have been agreed with the following organisations for this project:

  • Welsh Local Government Association
  • Community Housing Cymru
  • Wales Co-operative Centre
  • Wales Public Services 2025
  • Finance Wales

Further information about these partnerships will be announced shortly.

Start date: June 2017       End date:  tbc
