Innovating for Good, the national conference for community and voluntary groups and charities in Ireland, will prove to be one of the most significant gatherings of community and voluntary groups this year. The conference will explore some of the biggest questions currently facing our sector, including the changing relationship between the State and our sector and the impact of the looming reform of the public sector.

This conference is open to all who are volunteering, working in, or associated with the community and voluntary sector.
