The aim of the CSEF is to improve the quality of employment in
the sector by -
- Developing a strong collective voice for community sector

Over 100 diverse organisations have joined the CESF. We have
built strong links with the Labour Relations Commission, IBEC
and the other social partners. The CSEF produces policy papers,
organises events for employers, liaises with other employer
bodies, trade unions and makes representations to government.
Membership is free and open to all community and voluntary organisations
which employ staff. Employers’ Forum members should be committed to
best employment practice. The CSEF aims to work within a
partnership model of industrial relations and encourages a positive
attitude towards trade union membership.
The Forum is supported by Dublin
Employment Pact. For further information, updates and to become a
