Cost of Living events

We have a series of cost of living events running throughout Northern Ireland starting on 27 March in NICVA and continuing in partnership with local networks throughout April and May. We want to hear from you about the challenges you are facing and work on possible solutions together. These workshops will provide a chance to connect with others from our sector, help to influence our asks of government and shape the practical support we offer.  We would love you to come to one of these sessions. Have a look and chose one that is near to you. You can see all of the events planned and book your place by clicking here.
