PRCA launches UK Government Funded Brexit Guide for Public Relations

The Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) has announced a programme of events and resources designed to help PR professionals prepare for Brexit. 

The resources include a new legal guide – delivered by Lewis Silkin – featuring advice on data, copyright, and other important issues for communications practitioners. It forms part of the PRCA’s broader efforts to help PR businesses and practitioners prepare for Brexit.

Alongside the guide, the PRCA will deliver a programme of events and webinars before 31st October to help PR professionals navigate the challenges of the UK’s exit from the EU.

The PRCA has recently been awarded a grant by the UK Government’s Brexit Readiness Fund to help PR professionals prepare for the potential outcome of a no deal. The grant was approved by the Government’s Business Readiness Fund, which supports efforts by trade associations and others to facilitate Brexit preparations in the business community.

Francis Ingham MPRCA, Director General, PRCA, said: “For very many PRCA members, the implications of a no-deal Brexit are of fundamental importance. That is why we have worked with Lewis Silkin to produce this practical, expert guide, focusing in particular on data-handling, and on the implications for practitioners who hold a non-UK EU passport. We will, in addition, be hosting events over the next ten days all across the UK explaining the practical consequences of no-deal Brexit and providing guidance. Whatever one’s view of Brexit -and indeed of no-deal Brexit- is it critical that we all understand and prepare for its consequences.”
