National Volunteering Week (NVW)

National Volunteering Week 2019 will take place from 13th – 19th May 2019.  It is a whole week dedicated to highlighting volunteering across Ireland and is run in partnership with the network of Volunteer Centres and Volunteering Information Services. Keep an eye on this page for info over the coming months.

The theme for NVW 2018 was Volunteering Builds Better Communities. From local Tidy Towns groups to Community First Responders and the parents coaching their children’s sports teams – coming together to give back makes a community stronger. When people volunteer they feel closer to their community and the people in it, and they take pride in their community.

Check out our special National Volunteering Week video on the difference that volunteers make:
