Statement on funding for referendum campaign

NWCI represents the views, issues and concerns of our more than 180 member organisations. Together we work for an Ireland where women can achieve their full potential in a just and equal society.  

NWCI is calling for a yes vote in the referendum on divorce, 24th May 2019. To do this, we are currently fundraising to pay for staff costs, events and some printed materials.  

We have registered with the Standards in Public Office Commission (SIPO) and will comply fully with the regulations regarding fundraising for political campaigning. We are compliant with the Mc Kenna judgement by not spending any public funds on this referendum.

The NWCI financial statements are prepared in accordance with the Statements of Recommended Practice (SORP): Accounting and Reporting for Charities, 2014 FRS 102 and are available on our website.
