Volunteer Bureau

            
                            Recruitment and Retention of Volunteers Training


South West Cavan C.D.P is setting up a Volunteer Bureau to promote and support voluntary activity in the community. Volunteering is the commitment of time and energy, for the benefit of society, local communities, individuals outside the immediate family, the environment or other causes. Voluntary activities are undertaken of a person’s own free will, without payment, except for the reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses.

As a volunteer what can I do?

The term volunteering covers many different activities. It can mean visiting an elderly or sick neighbour; giving blood; doing a sponsored walk; getting involved in your local scouting or guiding club; assisting a charity with its finances or administration; helping someone to read and write; planting trees … the list is endless. You could join our Befriending Scheme or before a member of our Management Committee.

We are setting up a bureau to match people who want to volunteer with groups who need volunteers. We will place volunteers with groups with similar interests and aims so if you would like to volunteer or if you are a group in need of volunteers please contact us on 049 4336070.
