From 2020 Leitrim will have a full service Volunteer Centre for the first time. The Centre will help people who want to volunteer in their community to find suitable volunteer roles and will help local organisations to recruit volunteers. It will also provide a range of other services including Garda vetting and training in volunteer management.
We recognise the potential of volunteering and encourage groups and organisations – be they private, statutory or voluntary and community – to think creatively about volunteering roles and to develop imaginative, non-traditional opportunities for potential volunteers.
The Leitrim Volunteer Centre will be funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development, and supported during start-up by both Volunteer Ireland and long-established Volunteer Centres in neighbouring counties.
