COVID Social Enterprise Fund

The COVID Social Enterprise Fund will support social enterprises that already deliver services and products but find themselves in financial difficulties directly as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. 
The primary intention of the fund is to help social enterprises to stabilise and manage cash flow over this difficult period.
The fund has been co designed with Social Enterprise NI and is administered by Community Finance Ireland on behalf of the Department for Communities (DfC).
 
The Covid Social Enterprise Fund will open for applications at 9am on 28 September 2020. The Fund will close at 17:00 on 23 October 2020.

The Fundraising Regulator- Code of Fundraising Practice

View the Fundraising Regulator’s new webinar on the Code of Fundraising Practice

The webinar is designed to help charity staff, volunteers and trustees understand what the code is, who it applies to, what the code covers and how to use the code, both online and offline. We hope that leaders of smaller charities may find this especially helpful as a resource for training those new to fundraising.
