CO3 hosted a roundtable discussion under the theme of leadership with Ulster Unionist Party Leader, Robin Swann.

Held on 6 July 2017 at The Hive, the event was attended by a group of CO3 members and Chaired by Maeve Monaghan, CEO of NOW Group.

The roundtable presented CO3 members with an opportunity to discuss in more detail the particular leadership priorities of the Third Sector.

Charities Hit by Political Impasse

The political impasse has been hitting third sector organisations hard, a new report suggests.

The Ulster Bank & CO3 3rd Sector Index points to a near-doubling in the number of charities reporting a reduction in their government funding – from 17% last quarter to 32% now.

And most leaders (76%) of third sector organisations state that the lack of an Executive has had a negative impact on their organisation.

CO3 were delighted to facilitate the farewell party to mark the end of the Xchange funding programme and celebrate the successes.

Formed from a collective of 15 people funded as part of the Norther Ireland Development Programme by Esmee Fairburn and Henry Smith Charity, the aim of the Xchange was to develop Third Sector Leaders and nurture change makers.
