Comlámh Code of Good Practice

If you are interested in overseas volunteering, we recommend contacting Comhlámh who have provided advice and support for people interested in overseas development work since 1975. They aim to develop best practice in the growing sector of overseas volunteering, and to support volunteers in a longer-term commitment to development. They also have a Code of Good Practice for volunteer sending agencies where you can find over 30 organisations who provide quality volunteering opportunities overseas.

Volunteer Ireland and local Volunteer Centre services are limited to volunteer placements in the Republic of Ireland. To register as a volunteer with Volunteer Ireland or a local Volunteer Centre, a volunteer must have an address in the Republic of Ireland and all volunteering opportunities publicised on or through local Volunteer Centres are Irish based.
