Dublin Northwest Partnership invite you to their Charities Regulator Training on 07 December, from 11.30am – 1.00pm, at the Axis Centre, Ballymun Road, Dublin 9.  The Charity Regulator’s  Governance Code has become a major part of consideration of not-for-profits over the past few years. It is compulsory that registered charities can demonstrate their compliance with the standards in the Code and increasingly it is being expected that non-charities follow the same approach.  Register for this training here.
