Dear PPN member,
With Brexit on the horizon, a lot of focus in the media has been around the impact on business and the economy. However, the PPNs operating in the North West Region (Sligo, Mayo, Leitrim, Roscommon, Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal) also realise that there are huge concerns among our community groups regarding the potential impact of Brexit on everyday life and, most importantly, your health and wellbeing.
In the event of Brexit, the North West Regional PPN network plans to host a post-Brexit event for community groups. This will focus on what has actually happened and the effects for both individuals and the community as they go about their everyday lives. In order to make this event as useful to you as possible, we want to first try and capture your real fears and concerns:
- how this might affect access to medical care
- how your daily commute is affected
- will your group funding opportunities change
- the hit on your weekly shop
- the effect, if any, on your social and family connections.
Your comments will help us ensure that our Brexit event will respond to as many of your issues as possible. We may be able to provide assurance where your concerns were unfounded. We can highlight how you see Brexit affecting you most and what we need to do about it. The information would also be useful for a joint submission from the region.
Please take 5 minutes to complete our survey
As the date and nature of Brexit remains unclear, the NWRPPN plans to host any such event arising from the survey one month after Britain’s departure from the European Union.
