Registration is now open for Clann Credo's annual conference Common Cents 2014. The conference will examine the key issue of 'Aligning Capital with Economic and Social Justice'. 

When: 16 October, 9am-16.40pm

Where: Ashling Hotel, Parkgate Street, Dublin 8

As Ireland prepares to come out of the worst recession in living memory what are the needs and requirements of our people, economy, society and communities around the country? What are the trends in funding community and voluntary organisations that address these needs? Can new measures like social impact investing address key issues, including homelessness? 

Robert Watt, Secretary General of the Department of Public Expenditure & Reform joins an impressive range of speakers to addresses such questions. Other confirmed speakers include Brother Kevin Crowley, Founder Capuchin Day Centre and Avila Kilmurray who was until recently the Director of the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland. 

Clann Credo - the Social Investment Fund has almost two decades of providing loan finance to community, voluntary and charitable organisations throughout Ireland. Currently over 300 organisations are in receipt of loans totalling more than €22 million, making a vital contribution to community development and services. 

Who should attend? 

This conference is for anyone with an interest in investing for economic and social value, community and voluntary activity, social enterprise, community business, social investment, social policy and new investment opportunities.
