Description of main activities / services for children and families:

Volunteer and Volunteer Involving Organisations matching service.


Our vision is to support the people of County Leitrim in further enhancing its places and ways of living as flourishing, vibrant communities, with volunteering at its heart. Volunteers have the potential to build local value, increase their social capital, become active citizens, and provide support to community development projects.

Leitrim Volunteer Centre aims to match volunteers to suitable volunteer opportunities within community-based organisations. This is a great opportunity to engage transition year students looking for work experience, college-bound students looking to improve their employability, Parents, guardians and children looking to engage in family volunteering, immigrants looking to meet people and learn about their locality, individuals looking for once-off micro volunteering opportunities that fit their schedule, professionals looking to share their knowledge, and retirees looking to become active. There is something out there for everyone and we can help you find a volunteering opportunity that suits your interests.

If you are considering volunteering or have questions about what it entails, please give us a call. We can help you identify what kinds of skills, knowledge and experience you would like to develop when giving your time to an organisation. We can also help you think about your interests and the kind of organisation that you would like to support. Please download the I-VOL app on your phone to find opportunities near you!

We very much look forward to helping you on your volunteering journey
