Triple Locked

We take our obligations around transparency and good governance seriously. Misean Cara has achieved the “triple-lock” of good governance and reporting standards:

  • Each year we publish our annual audited accounts on our website in compliance with the Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP) under FRS102
  • The Board of Directors monitors compliance with the Principles of Good Governance under the national Governance Code for the Community, Voluntary and Charitable (CVC) sector
  • Our fundraising practices are compliant with the Statement of Guiding Principles for Fundraising

This has been recognised by Charities Institute Ireland, of which we are a member.
