Government is continuing to assess the impact of leaving the EU on charities and social enterprises, including around funding. The National Council for Voluntary Organisations estimate that in 2014/15 charities received between £350-450 million of EU funding. Estimates for 2016 are not yet available.

There are a wide range of EU funding schemes that charities and social enterprises access. Government is actively listening to the views of charities and social enterprises as we develop successor funding schemes to EU programmes
