Community Matters - Resources

The aim of the Community Matters campaign is to ensure that the voice of the Irish community, voluntary and charitable sector is heard in the upcoming elections, both local and European.

We will do this by ensuring that candidates are informed and engaged with the fantastic work done by the nonprofit community and how that work benefits society as a whole.

Please find all our campaign materials/assets below to support you in spreading the Community Matters message.

We encourage you to write to your local candidates, running in both the EU and Local Elections, using the email templates and materials provided below. Ask them to sign the Community Matters pledge here so they can champion the charity, community and voluntary and social enterprise sector.
