Founded on the vision of a better society
People who commit their time and energies to a cause know that changes can be brought about through pursuing meaningful ideals. Our Vision, Mission and Values underpins the work and development of the Carmichael Centre, and has enabled us to grow into a leading national resource and the largest shared services facility for voluntary and community organisations in Ireland.
Carmichael Centre envisages a future where charitable, community and voluntary organisations are empowered and enabled to help all people to have access to the range of supports they need to lead fulfilling lives.
Carmichael Centre is a dynamic learning environment which builds stronger charitable, community and voluntary groups nationwide by providing the shared services, targeted training, good practice and governance support they need to build effective and sustainable organisations.
A set of core values informs the approach of Carmichael Centre for Voluntary Groups in achieving its Mission. These are:
Partnership is the Key
In the Carmichael Centre we have developed a partnership style of working with internal member charities, associates, service users, statutory agencies and subject matter experts. Working together, we have developed a suite of services that can accommodate organisations of varying sizes and needs. These services are delivered both within the Carmichael Centre and on an outreach basis within organisations located throughout Ireland.
