Tipperary Volunteer Centre launched

New home for volunteering agency in Chapel Lane, Cashel

Tipperary Volunteer Centre launched

Tipperary Volunteer Centre was officially launched last Tuesday (September13th) in their new premises on Chapel Lane, Cashel.

The centre focuses on promoting, enabling and supporting volunteering throughout Tipperary.

Having previously operated as South Tipperary Volunteer Centre, the centre has expanded to a county-wide service with the hard work and dedication of many people and organisations across Tipperary.

The launch was well attended by the centre’s staff, volunteers, board member and patrons, while the ribbon was cut by local Cashel man, Pat Flynn, who attended the launch with his wife Carmel.

Pat is a life-long volunteer and well-known for his involvement in the community, who was named as Cashel Person of the Year this year.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with the centre on info@volunteertipperary.ie, as there are a wide variety of roles, with various organisations just waiting to be filled across the county. From shop assistants, to hospital visitors, play-school assistants, youth leaders and community first responders, the list is endless. Similarly, if you would like to recruit volunteers for your group or organisation please get in touch.

The centre also provides training for groups in volunteer management, and can also provide Garda Vetting for your group. For further information please call 062-64775 or call into the centre for a cuppa and a chat about how we can help you.
