The National Day of Volunteering

The aim of the National Day of Volunteering is to encourage everyone in Ireland to give volunteering a go, to show that – even if it’s only for a minute, an hour, a day – volunteering can make a big difference and be a lot of fun! This year, the National Day of Volunteering will take place on Friday, 1st of October.

There are lots of ways you can get involved: you can register to take part in a project already happening, register a project yourself, commit a ’random act of volunteering’ or simply take the opportunity to thank a volunteer. You’ll find a host of helpful guides and tools to help you here on our website or you can contact us with any queries too.

Why get involved?

Because volunteering is good for you! Volunteering has a proven positive impact on volunteers, those they volunteer with and society in general. Together, we can build stronger neighbourhoods, stronger communities, a stronger Ireland!
