Riona Rochford from Volunteer Ireland also attended, and she had some great information on volunteering. You can find lots of opportunities for volunteering on www.I-VOL.ie.
She described Volunteer Ireland as a dating agency that pairs volunteers with those who need them. She loves chatting with people and trying to match them with the best volunteer or the best role as a volunteer. A lot of variety exists in the roles available, with many capable of being done from the comfort of your own home.
Volunteering is a great way of gaining experience and meeting people. Unfortunately, most volunteering roles only cater for those over the age of eighteen. Every two weeks, Riona runs an information session with her colleague Olivia. She will be popping into future coffee mornings to keep in touch with us all.
