After years of advocating by Volunteer Ireland and the network of Volunteer Centres, the Government has taken the first steps towards a national volunteering strategy!
They have launched a 'Call for Input' paper which outlines the current state of volunteering and asks a number of questions about how volunteering can be developed in the future. We encourage anyone with an interest in volunteering to read and respond to the paper.
Over the coming weeks Volunteer Ireland will be hosting regional consultations in partnership with the network of Volunteer Centres (including Sligo Volunteer Centre) - we'll share details of those shortly. We'll also be sharing tips and guidance on how to respond if you don't have much time.
