Meet, Share and Learn - Networking event in Cloughjordan, Co. Tipperary

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. 

This networking and information session for nonprofits in Tipperary and surrounding counties is an opportunity to share the great work that is happening in communities and to learn about supports available.

The session will explore opportunities for sustainable funding and governance in nonprofits.

Participants will leave the session with greater awareness of:

  • the diversity of work being carried out by community groups locally
  • the supports and services provided by The Wheel
  • practical steps towards funding sustainability
  • the responsibilities of Trustees and the new Charities Governance Code and guidance available to support its implementation
