New Volunteer Centre Coming to Waterford in 2020

Recruitment for Board Trustees Now Open

Volunteer Ireland is delighted to announce that Waterford will have a full service Volunteer Centre in 2020. The Volunteer Centre will help people who want to volunteer in their community to find suitable volunteer roles and will help local organisations to recruit volunteers. It will also provide a range of other services including Garda vetting and training in volunteer management.

To date, Waterford has had a Volunteering Information Service operating with very limited time and staff resources, aiming to simply maintain a website and access to the national volunteering database I-VOL. Waterford is one of eight counties that has not had a full Volunteer Centre and is now finally getting one – along with Cavan, Kilkenny, Leitrim, Laois, Offaly, Roscommon and Wexford.

Recruitment is now open for trustees of the board of Waterford Volunteer Centre. Trustees with a range of skills are being sought to drive the future of volunteering in Waterford.

Volunteer Ireland is encouraging anyone with an interest in volunteering to consider joining the board of Waterford Volunteer Centre. This is a unique opportunity to join the Volunteer Centre at the beginning of their journey and have a real and meaningful impact on volunteering in the area.

Volunteer Ireland will host a public meeting for anyone interested in learning more about the Volunteer Centre. It will take place on Wednesday 23rd October from 4.30pm to 5.30pm in the Tower Hotel, Waterford. More information on the recruitment process and the public meeting is available here.
