Discover more about the inspiring work of our resident member organisations, their impact and the difference they make to communities across the country. Our featured story is Show Racism the Red Card.

Show Racism the Red Card is a charity set up to tackle racism. Through producing education resources harnessing the profile of sports starts, we reach up to 20,000 young people through our programme of activities. Our activities include:

  • Anti Racism workshops / training
  • Wear Red Day against racism
  • Anti Racism Creative Competition
  • Football Against Racism in Europe fortnight
  • Club Welcome refugees

We moved to the Carmichael Centre as the best option for a small charity. Carmichael provides low cost office space, shared office facilities including postage, printing, reception and finance support services.  We benefited from good governance code training and as a consequence were one of the first of 300 out of 8,000 charities to be fully compliant. Carmichael is a good space to support small organisations who are limited by resources. It provides a space and resource to allow a small organisation have as big an impact as possible. There is a case for a similar model to be in other cities, we are lucky to have Carmichael in Dublin.

On behalf of Carmichael, thank you to everyone who attended and took part in our annual fundraiser the 2018 Dublin May Choral Concert. This concert is a flagship event in the choral calendar and takes place annually in the beautiful setting of St Patrick’s Cathedral. This year the theme was Mozart’s Requiem with pieces by Bach, Grieg and Schutz. The event attracted a large crowd from home and abroad and the ongoing support we receive every year allows us to continue the vital work that we do both locally and nationally and through the provision of our shared services facilities.

We would like to extend a special thank you to our performers and soloists to the Young Euroepan Strings Chamber Orchestra and to the ongoing support of the wonderful Goethe-Institut Choir. To our volunteers on the night, those who attended on the night and the staff of St Patricks Cathedral we are deeply grateful for your support.

This event was proudly sponsored in 2018 by Arthur Cox, Bar of Ireland, BHP Insurance, CRH, Eversheds Sutherland, KPMG, Quilter Cheviot, Quinn Downes and Xilinx. We would also like to acknowledge Independent News & Media and Dublin City FM for your promotional support of this event. To all of the above organisations – a sincere thank you.
