It is important that volunteers have positive volunteering experiences and that volunteer involving organisations are supported to provide such positive local volunteering experiences. As such we are delighted to let you know that as part the schedule of events for National Volunteering Week 2017, Kerry Volunteer Centre has today launched an innovative Volunteer Management Training Program for Kerry to provide a local and free training platform for charities, community groups, volunteer involving organisations and volunteers to become skilled in Volunteer Management.
Kerry Volunteer Centre is delighted to share with you news of its involvemnt with the Carmichael Centre 2017 Good Governance Awards in association with its partners: Charities Institute Ireland, Dóchas, ENCLUDE, Volunteer Ireland, The Wheel, Davy Charities, Governance On-Line, Mason Hayes & Curran and Mazars.
This successful initiative now in its second year is accepting applications to be considered for one of four award categories. The Awards have been established to recognise and encourage compliance and adherence with good governance best practice by non-profit organisations in Ireland.
The Charities Act 2009 commenced alongside the launch of the Charities Regulatory Authority (CRA) on the 16th of October 2014 with the exception of Part 4 (statutory investigations) and Part 7 (miscellaneous). About 8,500 organisations were transferred from the Revenue database under Section 4 of the Act. At present all existing CHY charities are deemed registered with additional information still being required for some. Charities not registered must apply to register by the 16th April 2015.
