Course details: 
The community and voluntary sector is facing a number of major challenges at present, with big changes taking place in the regulatory, governance and funding environments, amongst many others.
 
This webinar will provide a space for our members to learn more about these challenges, as well as to discover what The Wheel is doing to respond to them.
 
Far more than just a presentation however, this session is also your opportunity to provide us with your input and feedback on all topics discussed. Participants can expect a wide-ranging discussion, in which ideas and solutions to the common problems we share shall be the order of the day.
 
The specific issues that this briefing will be addressing include:
 
  • Commitments in the Programme for Government to support the sector and The Wheel's strategy to progress them
  • Commissioning for Communities - our work to shape emerging commissioning practice with DPER, Tusla and the HSE
  • The National Economic Dialogue
  • The National Rural network
  • The new Charity Regulator's priorities
  • The Government's Local and Community Development Policy
  • The Benefacts initiative
  • Public trust and confidence in charities: where are we now - and what else needs to be done.

This is your chance to join your fellow members in helping to shape The Wheel's future advocacy agenda. Participation is strongly recommended.
