Supports for the Sector

Ireland's charities and community and voluntary organisations require the same supports that are available to profit-making business if they are to thrive. Yet many of the enterprise supports provided to for-profit businesses are not available to charitable, non-profit groups. The Wheel believes that this siutuation needs to be rectified if the innovative capacity in our community and voluntary sector is to be fully realised in resolving our social  and economic difficulties.There is now a need to provide integrated, nationwide support infrastructure to enable the community and voluntary sector to deliver on its potential to make Ireland a better place to live in.
