Meet, Share and Learn

Meet, Share and Learn

Community and voluntary organisations, charities and social enterprises often face similar challenges, from funding to regulation. But we rarely have the opportunity to meet with our peers in other local organisations to find solutions together to these common issues.

Join Donncha Foley, The Wheel’s Local Representative for Galway and Clare for this free networking and information session. Meet other community organisations in your area. Share your experiences and the challenges that impact on your work. Learn about innovative approaches to addressing issues affecting the sector.

Special Focus: Charities Governance Code 

The Charities Regulator published a new Charities Governance Code in late 2018. All registered charities in Ireland must comply with this new standard by 2020. Come along to this free forum to get an overview of the Code and its requirements & learn about the supports available from The Wheel to help your organisation comply. 

You will leave the session with:

  • Increased knowledge of relevant supports and services provided by The Wheel;
  • Greater awareness about the ways in which local community and voluntary organisations can influence policy;
  • Introduction to the New Governance Code.
