Overcoming challenges to deliver more

Northern Ireland’s ‘not-for-profit’ or ‘third’ sector is a diverse and highly valuable contributor to the local economy. Today, not-for-profit organisations are increasingly expected to deliver more, while at the same time facing cuts in government funding and voluntary giving.
