COSLA is supporting councils to ensure that Local Government is adequately prepared for Brexit, particularly should there be no deal. We are working, at political and officer levels, with all our member councils, UK local authority associations, and UK and Scottish Governments to identify, manage and mitigate the risks to services and our local communities.

On this page you will find an overview of the main Brexit implications and our work to date to support Scottish councils, as well as a variety of useful information and national advice.
