National Volunteering Week (NVW)

National Volunteering Week 2020 will take place from 18th – 24th May 2020.  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.

The theme for 2020 will be health and well-being where we’ll focus on showcasing the benefits of volunteering to the health and well-being of individuals and communities. We’ll also be giving tips and advice for volunteers and volunteer managers on how they can look after their own well-being. Check back soon for more information and resources!
