National Volunteering Strategy - Call for Input
We are deligted to welcome the publication of a call for input on the proposed national volunteering strategy by the Department of Rural and Communiy Development. According to Leah Kinsella, manager of the County Wicklow Volunteer Centre " We are a nation of people who like to get involved and give back from being a coach in a sports club to visiting an elderly neighbour in bad weather. The incredible generosity that Irish people show in giving their time has led to volunteering being embedded at the heart of Irish communities. However there are challenges facing the future of volunteering that need to be addressed. Volunteering needs to be adequately resourced, and the way people want to volunteer is changing. People are increasingly looking for more skills-based and short-term opportunities, and organisations need support to meet this changing demand as well as the changing regulatory environment" So please join us and have your say on the national volunteering strategy by completing this survey.
