EU Funding: Impact of Brexit on Section 75 Equality Groups in Northern Ireland
We are calling for urgent action by the UK Government, the Northern Ireland Executive and relevant Departments, to address the challenges faced by equality groups and minimise the potential impact of the loss of EU funding.
Below we have set out our key policy recommendations relating to the proposals outlined by the UK Government on replacement European Union (EU) funding, including the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF). Our recommendations have been informed by the findings of a research report (pdf) which sought the views of a range of stakeholders including those who had received EU funding for programmes that promoted equality of opportunity and good relations in Northern Ireland. Our policy recommendations have taken their views into account and have been refined following further engagement.
