Blossom Ireland actively demonstrates openness, transparency and integrity to all of our beneficiaries and donors. We are fully compliant with all relevant Irish charity legislation and regulatory frameworks.

Triple Lock

In 2018 we received the Triple Lock Standard from the Charities Institute of Ireland in recognition of best practice transparency and accountability. This is a huge achievement for Blossom Ireland as there are only approx. 60 charities in Ireland who have received Triple Lock status.

We regularly monitor compliance with all policies and standards of governance.

We regularly monitor compliance with all of the above.
