Change Makers is governed by the Project Steering Group which reports progress into the Inishowen Development Partnership (the lead partner) Board of Management.  The project also reports to our funder, Irish Aid, on an annual basis, aligned to the Performance Management Framework of the Irish Aid Development Education Strategy 2017 – 2023. The Project Steering Group membership includes representatives from each partner organisation.


The project has a Project Coordinator, Myra McAuliffe who is responsible for the daily management of the project, and Kate O’Callaghan, a former panel member, now Development Worker, supported by the Steering Group and the project facilitators.
