In June of this year, Carmichael worked with TU Dublin to examine the impact of Covid-19 on Irish nonprofits.

The overall findings suggest that the nonprofits surveyed demonstrated huge resilience in terms of coping with increased demand for their services while experiencing a drop in funding, and in the decreased availability of volunteers.

They did this by innovative approaches to service delivery which often involved the increased use of technology.

Carmichael and The Wheel carried out this wide-ranging consultation with the community and voluntary sector across Ireland to establish what training and support is needed by organisations of different sizes and in different locations, what types of supports are currently being accessed and how they could best be organised and developed to enable these organisations to meet the challenges they face. As two of the largest providers of training and supports to the sector we decided to work in partnership to undertake this important consultation.

This report contains the results of extensive qualitative research carried out with organisations representing the full diversity of our sector as well as policymakers, regulators and funders. We hope that the information in the report will assist not just Carmichael and The Wheel, but all infrastructure organisations in designing the supports and training that they will offer in the future.

Working in collaboration with Benefacts, a research project was undertaken by Carmichael to get a better sense of the general quality of annual reports in the wider charities sector.
