Eire Dialogue

http://eiredialogue.ie/

Eire Dialogue is established in Dublin in 2010 and is a sister charity of Dialogue Society, with the aim of advancing social cohesion by connecting communities, empowering people to engage and contributing to the development of ideas on dialogue and community building. It does this by bringing people together through discussion forums, courses, capacity building publications and outreach. Eire Dialogue is not a religious or ethnic organisation. It aims to facilitate dialogue on a whole range of social issues, regardless of any particular faith or religion. It stands for democracy, human rights, the non-instrumentalisation of religion in politics, equality and freedom of speech. Eire Dialogue is directed by a team of committed staff and volunteers who have a proven track record of working within the community. The team’s expertise is complemented by the input of the Eire Dialogue Board of Advisors, a distinguished group of people who between them represent a very wide range of expertise and experience.

Eire Dialogue derives its funding from private donations from local business people and professionals, which is testament to its support at the grassroots community level where its work is clearly valued. It achieves a remarkably high level of output in relation to its relatively small budget due to the support of committed volunteer
