Northern Ireland’s charities face funding crisis

Northern Ireland’s charities and social enterprises have appealed to government and the general public to help them survive with many facing financial meltdown because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Traditional fund-raising has dried up with the closure of charity shops, childcare centres and cafes and the enforced cancellation of sponsored events from marathons to coffee mornings.

Worthy Charity Boards recognised for Good Leadership, Governance and Commitment


The Leadership and Good Governance Awards, organised by VSB Foundation in partnership with CO3, Investec and Volunteer Now celebrate voluntary organisations which are working hard to improve their governance.  

CO3 loves to celebrate the impact its members have on their beneficiaries’ lives, and to promote their vital work. 

Read about some of the excellent projects happening in our network in this week’s Member News.

It will come as no surprise that we find ourselves in the position of having to postpone the CO3 Leadership Conference originally planned for 26 March 2020 at the La Mon.

For those of you who have booked and paid for a conference ticket, as this is a postponed event your ticket sale will be honoured for the new date.
