Civil Society Capacity Building Programme


The programme was developed in 2013 in conjunction with our local development and local government stakeholders following an analysis of the issues facing smaller civil society organisations in the region. It was decided to focus on a small number of themes. These included:

  • Corporate governance;
  • Digital media.

In this context NorDubCo, working closely with specialist staff in Dublin City University, have devised and delivered a number of seminars in the areas of risk management, internal audit, social media and civil society, low-cost website development and preparing for organisational change. In addition we have delivered seminars exploring new research methodologies that could facilitate civil society organisations develop useful feedback from service users.

In October 2016 we will be delivering a seminar outlining the key issues for civil society organisations arising from the Regulation of Lobbying Act, 2015.
