Our main work is to provide volunteering options to the general public, which we do mainly by working with community groups to develop volunteer roles and to advertise them. We also support non-profits by sourcing training and education opportunities and we support groups to manage there volunteers effectively. Since 2006 we have worked with over 16,000 people and over 600 community organisations to build community. We are part of a national network of Volunteer Centres in Ireland.
