Thank you to all our Volunteers during National Volunteering Week

Thank you to all our Volunteers, for their time, support & kindness! Without it, we wouldn’t be able to support those Veterans who need it.

National Volunteering Week 20-26th May, is a weeklong celebration of volunteering.

Along with the network of Volunteer Centres, Volunteer Ireland uses National Volunteering Week to amplify the incredible stories of volunteering in our communities through social and traditional media. It’s a week full of events, both online and in person, with everything from yoga to coffee mornings to seminars on offer.

This year’s National Volunteering Week theme is ‘Uniquely Us’. We truly believe that celebrating, not just accommodating, the uniqueness of our volunteers makes our communities stronger and more connected. This National Volunteering Week we are exploring the diversity of volunteers who make Ireland what it is. No matter your age, race, abilities, or status, we honour your place in the community and the volunteering that you, uniquely, do.
