Volunteering to support displaced people

It is fantastic to see so many people helping their local communities during this crisis and is exactly what we have come to expect from the people of Ireland. If you’d like to volunteer in response to the war in Ukraine or to support any displaced persons living in Ireland, you can search for roles on I-VOL or contact your local Volunteer Centre.

It’s best to volunteer your time with existing registered charities who have experience supporting volunteers and working with displaced people. Check out this advice from the Charities Regulator.

Remember that this will be a long term response and volunteers will be needed at various stages so if you don’t find a role straight away, keep an eye out and stay in touch with your local Volunteer Centre.
