Over the last 5 months, CNI have been involved in the awareness raising initiative for social enterprise project, funded by DAF.

Our Project included a care pack postal campaign to 500 Care Settings , a Wellness Event for Carers , a Social Media Awareness Campaign and a Video Campaign showcasing 15 social enterprises and social enterprise supports in Ireland.

The 10 Social Enterprises that were showcased via video were: 
Alex’s Adventure, Active Connections, Trauma Responsive Education, Connections Arts Centre, Byowave, Let’s Get Talking, Sprei Nua, Westside Age Inclusion, Jobs for Family Carers & Carers Network Ireland. 

The 5 Social Enterprise Expert Supports highlighted were:
Ailish Irvine Training, Social Entrepreneurs Ireland, Closer Network, Rethink Ireland and Social Impact Ireland.

A special thanks to We Make Change &  our 3 volunteer videographers Colin Sutherland, Eoghan O’Carroll and David Guerrero who supported  us with the filming of 8 of the videos  with the  Cork and Dublin campaigns.

Thank you to everyone  who took part, engaged and sent lovely messages of support! 

This project was approved by government with supports from the Dormant Accounts Fund.
