About this programme

Recovery and Resilience Training Programme for Non-Profits

Carmichael are running a series of FREE training workshops for charities and non-profits in Ireland in 2022. These workshops are funded by the Community Foundation for Ireland as part of a wider Covid-19 Fund for Recovery. The Community Foundation for Ireland hopes that this funding will strengthen the skills base of the sector around fundraising, digital, governance and leadership, and build resilience among volunteer and staff teams. In turn, the sector will be in a more resilient position as it recovers stronger from Covid-19.

Registration is open to non-profit board members, staff and volunteers of all participating Volunteer Centres and will be on a first come first serve basis.

A maximum of two people from any one non-profit can register per workshop. The training is limited to two workshops per person.
