Policy & CAMPAIGNS
Ireland’s community and voluntary organisations, social enterprises and charities play a big part in all our lives at a local, national and international level. The Wheel is working to create the conditions for the sector to maximise this contribution.
Nonprofit organisations face many challenges and opportunities in the way the sector is recognised, resourced and regulated. This section of the website outlines the big issues and what we are doing to shape positive policies from the many stakeholders that can play a part in ensuring a thriving sector.
You can read a summary of our current policy positions in our recent Budget Submission.
COVID-19 has had a huge impact on the work of the sector and we have a special section dedicated to our work in this crucial area.
We are working to create a new vision for the community and voluntary sector in the living-with-COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 world, and you can read our latest thinking on this topic.
Please contact Ivan Cooper, Director of Public Policy here: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any comments or observations relating to public policy on the sector.
