National Volunteering Week 2019 took place from 13th – 19th May 2019. It was a whole week dedicated to highlighting volunteering across Ireland and run in partnership with the network of Volunteer Centres and Volunteering Information Services.
Did you know that there is no official definition of volunteering in Ireland? This year for National Volunteering Week we got people talking about volunteering! What it means to be a volunteer, what volunteering looks like for different people, why people volunteer and even why people don’t volunteer. Volunteer Centres and Volunteering Information Services around the country hosted events like coffee mornings and open days . You can get still involved in the conversation on social media too using #NVW2019 and #whyivolunteer.
