Charity Trustees’ Week is a well-deserved thank you to you and the more than 76,000 other charity trustees across the country for the important work you carry out in the governance and leadership of Ireland’s 11,500 charities.
This year, again, Boardmatch Ireland, Carmichael, Charities Institute Ireland, Dóchas, Pobal, Volunteer Ireland, the Wheel along with the Charities Regulator are coming together with a calendar of free events to acknowledge and celebrate your commitment to your charities and provide support and insights to help you in your roles.
The Charities Regulator is hosting two events during Charity Trustees’ Week 2023:
An overview of Ireland’s smaller charities – Webinar, 10am Monday 13 November
Smaller charities (that is those with an annual income of less than €100,000) make up almost half of Ireland’s registered charities (excluding schools). They are as diverse as they are numerous, operating in all areas of the country and furthering all charitable purposes. Research has consistently shown that smaller charities are the most trusted of all charities. Next month we are publishing a new report to help increase understanding of smaller charities and the important role played by this large and diverse section of the charity sector. Ahead of its publication the Charities Regulator’s Research Manager, Mandy Osborne, and I will provide a briefing on the highlights.
Good governance in practice – In-person/online 7pm, Tuesday 15 November
We will be in the River Court Hotel, Kilkenny for this hybrid event co-hosted with Volunteer Ireland. The Charities Regulator’s Director of Compliance and Enforcement, Thomas Mulholland and I will be joined by charity trustees to provide insights, points of learning and practical guidance on good governance for charities. I
would encourage you to visit our dedicated webpage for Charity Trustees’ Week, which includes details of all events as well as an interactive calendar with booking information.
