In 2018, all 21 Volunteer Centres achieved Quality Standards Awards

There are 21 Volunteer Centres in the Republic of Ireland. Along with supporting volunteers to find organisations to volunteer with – and vice versa – they deliver a number of services to support volunteering in their counties. One of these is the provision of training in volunteer management and leadership to organisations that involve volunteers. Good volunteer management is at the heart of volunteering across Ireland and Volunteer Centres teach best practice in volunteer management to organisations big and small. See below for all upcoming training courses.
