Charity Impact Awards 2019

The Charity Impact Awards is a special night where we honour and celebrate organisations and individuals who make a positive contribution to their communities.

We believe that people, through their participation in community and voluntary organisations, social enterprise and charities, play a central role in improving and enriching life in Ireland. The aim of the Awards is to recognise and showcase this important contribution.

This inspiring annual event has become a highlight in our event calendar and reminds us of the passion and hard work that is behind the nonprofit sector in Ireland.

Join us for an inspiring celebration of our sector's impact!
