Governance and Transparency in Le Chéile
In light of recent allegations relating to the misuse of charitable funds, Anne Conroy CEO of Le Chéile would like to reassure all our stakeholders that we are committed to the highest standards of governance in our work.

We believe that the work of Le Chéile, our outputs and outcomes and how we spend our money should be open to scrutiny by funders and the public. Therefore we embrace transparency and work to ensure that all of our work and the decisions we take are in the best interests of children and of our key stakeholders.
