Joint Briefing on the Charities Amendment Bill

The Wheel and Charities Institute Ireland invite you to an important joint briefing on the Charities Amendment Bill and its implications for charities in Ireland, at 11am - 12.30pm on Thursday, 30 June.

The Department of Rural and Community Development recently announced the publication of the Draft Charities Amendment Bill, which makes a number of amendments to the Charities Act 2009. The Bill is a vital document for the whole sector. It addresses a number of issues, such as the duties and responsibilities of trustees, the statutory functions of the Charities Regulator and the establishment of the Charity Appeals Tribunal.

This briefing will provide some introductory analysis from The Wheel and CII on the Bill and its likely impact, followed by questions and comments from members of both organisations.

Please email Ivan Cooper at or our Policy Officer Lily Power if you have any questions.
