Volunteer Ireland Events

Volunteer Ireland hosts a number of flagship events throughout the year that aid in our goals to support and celebrate volunteering in Ireland. These include National Volunteering Week, the National Volunteer Management Conference and the Volunteer Ireland Awards.

We believe that people can fulfil their potential through volunteering and that volunteering contributes to healthier and more resilient communities.

Through our events Volunteer Ireland encourage new people to volunteer and we increase awareness of volunteering as a positive experience that can transform lives and support causes. We celebrate the individuals that share their time so generously and we work with volunteer involving organisations to ensure they are providing good quality experiences that meet the changing expectations of volunteers.
