Clann Credo’s focus throughout the Covid-19 crisis has been on supporting the network of Clann Credo customers and colleagues to work collaboratively on the challenges faced by community and voluntary organisations.
In the coming weeks we are hosting a series of free online events to help with the next steps, reopening facilities and services whilst safeguarding communities. These events may be of interest to community groups in your area and will give them the opportunity to engage with others who understand the challenges being faced.

Tracey Hannon, Social Finance Regional Manager for Clann Credo in the West and North West will host this session. She will talk about what we’ve heard so far and the supports we provide.

Liam has already worked with over 80 groups online, each trying to figure out what how to respond to the realities of a post Covid-19 world. He will share the experiences of these groups and provide a manual that he has compiled to help you open safely.

Local Sports Organisations; Adapting to the New Normal and Finding Supports
Thursday 30th July, 7 – 8pm
As local sports organisations restart their activities and adapt to the new normal, we recognise the challenges that have been presented in this ever-changing landscape.

Darren McMahon – Consultant with 2into3 will speak about the impact on fundraising in the Sports sector and how sports organisations can adapt their fundraising and income models successfully.
There will be opportunities to pose questions to our panel on the night, but we also encourage you to submit any questions you might have when you register so that we can provide the most useful information for your organisation.
Spaces are limited and previous events were oversubscribed, so we would encourage early registration to avoid disappointment.
