Celebrating 20 years
In 2019, The Wheel celebrated 20 years of working together with our members to promote a thriving community and voluntary sector at the heart of a fair and just Ireland.
Over the course of two decades, we worked to develop, support, and give a voice to Ireland’s charities, community and voluntary organisations and social enterprises, helping them to respond to massive societal changes and challenges.
