About Carmichael Centre

Carmichael Centre is home to 48 charities and provides them with shared services and targeted supports. Each year our 48 resident charities directly help 40,000 people and indirectly 100,000 people from all over Ireland.

Within the hub people network, share resources, share ideas and inspire each other daily. Since 1990, the Carmichael Centre has grown from one shared building (Carmichael House) to include Coleraine House and Richmond Office Suite today. Carmichael Centre was founded on the vision of a better society. This vision continues to inform the work of Centre staff, volunteers and board members.


The Carmichael Centre is the leading provider of quality services and supports to organisations with a social purpose to help maximise their impact.


Carmichael Centre will be known as the 'go to' place to inspire, nurture and guide organisations with a social purpose to maximise this potential and the positve impact they have on Irish society.

  • Encouragement
  • Professionalism
