Those needing an assistance

The current Coronavirus situation may place some of our community in a position of requiring assistance. Already we have a team of members who are making themselves available to assist where possible.

If you need assistance with groceries or other supplies or perhaps something else that you need help with then you can make contact with one of our volunteers listed below.

Before considering volunteering ask yourself – Am I well enough to volunteer?
Your safety and limiting the spread of the coronavirus being the main priority, Volunteer Centres continue to encourage you to adhere to HSE instructions on how best to avoid COVID-19, both in the work environment and at home.

If you are well enough and wish to volunteer there are 2 mains ways which you may be able to help
The first way is by clicking on the button above and registering to help.

The second way to help is by doing so informally in you own community
If you know people in your community who may be vulnerable and can contact them safely (e.g. phone call, whatsapp, drop note into door), just let them know that you are available and can assist with shopping etc.

Do not assume that someone needs help or call directly to someone’s house unannounced, as some people may be very anxious about making face to face contact, particularly if they have a medical condition or are living alone.

What if someone asks me do something I can’t actually do?
In this case you should let the person know that you cannot help and recommend that the Volunteer Centre may be able to assist in finding a solution. +353 65 68 455 13 / +353 65 68 455 17
