I ask myself this particular question a lot (courtesy of Shaun Delaney NCVO). But with Brexit, the answers seem more difficult to pin down. While parliament has passed legislation intended to rule out a ‘no-deal’ on 31 October, there are still several possible things that could happen. NCVO has already voiced its concerns over the danger of a no-deal Brexit, and no-deal is still possible if the EU decline an extension.
Either way, preparation is key. A couple of weeks ago, NCVO published its no-deal Brexit and the voluntary sector guide. To help, I’ve pulled together information relevant to volunteer-involving organisations.
Can EU volunteers carry on volunteering in the UK?
Yes, if they have either:
- Settled or pre-settled status
- European Temporary Leave to Remain
- A visa which doesn’t prevent them from volunteering
