volunteering builds better communities

National Volunteering Week will take place from 14th – 20th May 2018.  It is a whole week dedicated to highlighting volunteering across Ireland and is run in partnership with the network of Volunteer Centres and Volunteering Information Services.

This year’s theme is Volunteering Builds Better Communities. From local Tidy Towns groups to Community First Responders and the parents coaching their children’s sports teams – coming together to give back makes a community stronger. When people volunteer they feel closer to their community and the people in it, and they take pride in their community.

We are encouraging everyone to think about how they can get involved in their local community this National Volunteering Week (14th – 20th May). Volunteer Centres and Volunteering Information Services across the country will host open days and coffee mornings where people can drop in and find out about local volunteering opportunities and how to get involved.
