About Sligo Volunteer Centre

We help people who want to volunteer as well as non-profit groups who need volunteers.

For non-profit groups we provide one-to-one support on all aspects of how to find and keep good volunteers. We run training courses and workshops, facilitate a quarterly Volunteer Manager's Forum and provide a Garda Vetting service. We also advertise group's volunteer vacancies and refer potential volunteers to them for selection.

For the general public who are thinking of volunteering, we provide a database of current options available in Sligo (and nationwide). We also provide group workshops and one-to-one guidance to help people find satisfying and rewarding volunteering roles. Find out more at www.volunteersligo.ie
