The Brexit Deal Explained

On 29 March 2019, the United Kingdom will leave the European Union, thereby fulfilling the democratic decision taken by the British people.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) is at the heart of EU Exit delivery. We are responsible for helping businesses export, driving inward and outward investment, preparing to negotiate market access and trade deals, and championing free trade.

To help the British public and businesses understand what the deal will deliver, Her Majesty’s Government has launched the ‘Brexit Deal Explained’ website.

This website explains the Withdrawal Agreement, which sets out the terms of the UK’s smooth and orderly exit from the European Union, and the Political Declaration, which sets out a framework for the UK’s ambitious future relationship with the European Union that delivers in our national interest.

Here you can find out what the Brexit deal means for our:

  • Economy
  • Jobs
  • Security
  • Free trade
  • Businesses
  • Borders

Please share the details of this website with any of your partners or staff who want to learn more about the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement and the Political Declaration.

Care Connections Noticeboard December 2018

Finishing the year well
For many of us Christmas time is approached with a mix of happy anticipation and a sense of uncertainty, even dread for some. The frenzied activity of the High Streets is not to everyone’s liking and felt obligations to our wider families become a worry. The elderly and vulnerable often find pressure in the season, or experience greater loneliness – which is a real shame.
As this NOTICE BOARD is about health and wellbeing matters, concerned with levels and types of care for those less able, I ask no forgiveness for suggesting that we all take on a certain responsibility to make the season truly one of joy and peace for others. I’m raising a flag for straight-forward, easy and natural responses to the needs of others. Let us lessen the load rather than heap up expectation and expense for others.
A greater number of our residents are now carers of others in their families. This brings pressure and limitations for them throughout the year. Carers need to be honoured and blessed at any time, but especially should be remembered now. With this thought in mind I’m making a bit of a focus on carers in this issue.
