This networking and information session for nonprofits in Cork and surrounding counties is an opportunity to share the great work that is happening in local communities and to learn about supports that may assist you in your work.
At this event there will be a structured networking & a broad discussion of the training and support needs of nonprofits. This focus group discussion will be led by Sheila Cahill, as part of a collaborative research project being led by The Wheel and Carmichael. See below for more details. You’ll also find out about supports and resources that will help you in your compliance with the new Charities Governance Code.
Participants will leave the session with greater awareness of:
- The diversity of work being carried out by community groups locally
- Shared understanding of the challenges faced by nonprofit organisations and the type of support that might make your life easier
- The new Charities Governance Code and guidance available to support its implementation
Collaborative Research Project
The Wheel and Carmichael are working collaboratively to consult with the non-profit sector to identify how people and organisations in the sector see the challenges their organisations face, and how best they want to access and receive supports to help them meet these challenges. The results will inform the work of both Carmichael and The Wheel in the supports they offer in the future and will also be made freely available online to any organisation interested in providing support to the sector. The work is being part-funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development.
