The Future of Regional Policy in Wales post 2020

WCVA’s Third Sector European Team (3-SET) is hosting a series of engagement events to explore the future of regional policy in Wales.

Under the 2014-2020 programme Wales is expected to receive over £2billion in European Structural Funds investment, with £75.5 million awarded so far to third sector led operations.  Under any new funding regime arising from Brexit, Wales must consider how it will administer and deliver any successor funds.
