The UK is leaving the EU on 31 October 2019 and we need to get businesses and citizens ready for this change. Local organisations play a vital role providing public information to communities and we want to support you when it comes to communicating about Brexit.
A new ‘Get Ready’ public information campaign has been created, the purpose is to inform and motivate the public and businesses to take action and prepare for Brexit. The campaign is bold, simple and instructive and will be highly visible across the UK.
The Government’s Brexit page will continue to provide a single location where audiences can find guidance and the most up-to-date information relating to Brexit. This campaign will use radio, TV, press, digital, video on demand, social media and out of home advertising, as well as ‘on the ground’ activity such as roadshows and events to help people prepare for leaving the EU.
On October 8 the Government published a report outlining the impacts of a no deal Brexit on UK businesses. The report can be accessed here.
