Free online Brexit tool available to support charities

A free online audit tool has been developed to help charities assess their readiness for Brexit and highlight areas where action may be needed.

The digital tool has been developed by lawyers Stone King to assist charities that employ EU nationals or rely on the movement of people from outside the UK.

It also looks at supporting charities around sponsorship responsibilities.

Questions it asks include how many EU nationals are employed, whether the charity has any premises within the EU and how likely staff are to travel within Europe.

Last month the NCVO urged charities to step up their preparations for the threat of a no deal Brexit and the “significant disruption it could cause”.

NCVO senior external relations officer Ben Westerman said: “Charities must act now to ensure that we are as prepared as possible for significant levels of disruption.”

This month it emerged that Brexit was a factor in half of international aid charities fearing they will close within the next two years. The Covid-19 crisis, the UK’s departure from the EU and funding cuts are all sighted as key threats to this charity sector.
