THE DEPARTMENT OF RURAL AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT have published a ‘Call for Input’ on the development of a national volunteering strategy. The document poses a number of questions on the current state of volunteering in Ireland, the challenges faced by volunteers and organisations and how we can develop the future of volunteering. Answers to these questions will inform the development of a national volunteering strategy.
Volunteer Ireland and the network of Volunteer Centres and Volunteering Information Services have been advocating for a national volunteering strategy for many years and this ‘Call for Input’ is the first step in this process. We encourage anyone with an interest in volunteering to read the document and submit their feedback by 14th February – Call for Input Volunteering – click this link for more information
