Volunteer

If you decide to volunteer with Peter McVerry Trust it can be an extremely rewarding experience. You will be using your time to make a real difference to the lives of some of the most marginalised and disadvantaged individuals in Ireland.

Employee Volunteer Days

We regularly organise employee volunteering days for companies and staff who are looking to help with the work of Peter McVerry Trust. We can cater for groups of varying sizes and have opportunities available throughout the year. These include the chance to help out with work in some of our services and to help out with fundraising activities.

To learn more about corporate or employee volunteer days, please contact the fundraising office on 01 823 0776 or email fundraising@pmvtrust.ie.

Fundraising Volunteers

Peter McVerry Trust organises fundraising appeals and events throughout the year. We rely on the support of many volunteers to help with these activities through office based supports or by helping out on site at a fundraising event.

If you would like to volunteer with us on a regular or ad hoc basis, please contact the fundraising office on 01 823 0776 or by email at fundraising@pmvtrust.ie.

Service Volunteers

Opportunities to volunteer exist across Peter McVerry Trust’s services, including our accommodation and support services.

However, there are only a limited number of places available for people seeking to volunteer in our services. The demand for these places are high and normally fill up extremely quickly.

If you are interested in volunteering in the services or would like to find out more about the process please email volunteer@pmvtrust.ie.

European Voluntary Service

Peter McVerry Trust participates in the European Voluntary Service (EVS), which is part of the Erasmus+ programme. EVS gives people aged between 17 and 30 the chance to learn through full-time voluntary work in a foreign country within or outside the EU. EVS volunteers taking part in the programme for more than two months abroad can get additional support to learn the language used during their volunteering. Read more about EVS on the European Commission website here.
