Volunteering alternatives during Covid-19

20 Mar 2020

Our voluntary effort can help our neighbours and those most at risk to get through this difficult time.

VSI is committed to promoting volunteering, defined in our mission statement as …acting out of self-initiative, without seeking material reward and for the benefit of civil society ….

In this spirt of solidarity, can you do anything locally to help? Can you give your time to fight the consequences of this virus? This could be an organised effort to bring supplies safely to neighbours or a simple phone-call. If you can do so, we would urge you to sign up with an organisation which really understands how to help those in greatest need without creating greater risk.

The Volunteer Ireland site brings together all volunteering advice and opportunities, including with the HSE. The site also includes a list of volunteer centres in all counties and many towns.
