In September 2017, Wexford Local Development (WLD) secured funding from Volunteer Ireland for the establishment of a Volunteering Information Service (VIS) for County Wexford. Volunteer Ireland is the national volunteer development agency and a support body for countywide Volunteer Centres and Volunteering Information Services in Ireland.
Volunteer Centres (VC): Offer Drop in Services, appointments, training, information provision, consultation, training and Garda Vetting.
Volunteering Information Services (VIS): Are similar to Volunteer Centres the difference between the two is that there are very limited recourses with no walk in location with full time staff. Instead, this is done through the website. www.volunteerwexford.ie
Wexford Volunteering Information Services Website (WVIS)
WVIS website is designed for individual who wish to search or partake in volunteer opportunities in Wexford and for, not for profit organisations that are seeking to involve volunteers in Wexford. The purpose of WVIS website is to help match individuals and groups interested in volunteering within Wexford with appropriate volunteering opportunities. This is achieved through registration.
How does registration work? Click on the link that is relevant to you on the website where you will then be asked to fill out a registration form.
If you are a volunteer the registration form collects your details, your interests and your availability. You will also have the opportunity to take part in a service called ‘Volunteer Finder’ on your registration. Volunteer Finder is a service that allows selected not-for-profit organisations to find your profile and suggest suitable volunteering roles for you. Your personal contact details will not be shared without your consent. You will have the option on your registration to opt out of this service.
You do not have to be registered to search volunteer opportunities this can be done via our website. However you do need to be registered to apply for volunteer opportunities.
If you are a not for profit organisation the registration form collects your organisations details and profile. Once you register your organisation and we have established that your organisation is not for profit and agrees to abide by our terms and conditions which can be found on the website, you will receive an email with more information and your password/key allowing you to post volunteer opportunities.
Open Mon-Friday 10am-12pm
