Have you been tasked with organising a volunteering opportunity for your work team? Are you wondering where to start?

If so, we encourage you to join our weekly online Employee Volunteering Information Session . Whether you have a team of 6 or 60, these sessions will give you the essential information you need to successfully plan your volunteer activity. We share ideas on the types of volunteering you could consider. We discuss the needs and expectations of community groups and the general Do’s and Don’ts of corporate volunteering.

Information sessions are hosted weekly on Fridays, from 11:00 to 12:00. You only need to attend once as we cover the same topics each week. To attend email [email protected].

Need our help?

Looking for an experienced team to plan and manage your large-scale company volunteer events? Volunteer Ireland’s corporate team collaborates with companies on large scale partnerships. These engage hundreds of employee volunteers in a range of community projects and global volunteer campaigns. Whatever your interests are – giving business advice to charities, hands-on painting and gardening projects, or delivering STEM activities to schools. It could be engaging in social activities with the elderly or assembling play packs for children in hospital or meal packs for Ukrainians living in Ireland. We will work with you to make meaningful and impactful volunteer opportunities.

Our approach to Corporate Volunteering:

Volunteer Ireland’s corporate programme has developed an ethos to guide us in our work with our corporate partners. Our ethos includes the following statement:

‘At all times, we aim to support the most vital needs in our community. We do this by mainly partnering with small, local, grassroots organisations and DEIS schools. These groups would not otherwise have access to corporate support. We continuously endeavour to ensure that our work is meaningful, impactful and relevant to those with the highest level of need.’
