About Us

What is the Volunteer Corps?

The Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Volunteer Corps is a group of citizens of the county, who make themselves available to volunteer at various community events. Our aim is to develop and run an inclusive group of local volunteers, who give their time to support local community events. 

In our first two years, we will run a small number of events, with a view to a larger role out in 2019.  At which time local not-for-profit organisations in Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County can apply, through the Volunteer Centre, to involve the DLR Volunteer Corps at their event.  Once it has been established that the project has the necessary supports (including clear volunteering roles, insurance, co-ordinator,) then the Volunteer Corps members will be contacted (by email) to inform them of an upcoming event.

Once volunteers indicate their availability and willingness to participate in a particular event, they will be informed of the venue, contact person, roles and times etc.

Who runs the DLR Volunteer Corps?

This is a project run by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown Volunteer Centre, in partnership with Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.  The volunteers will be managed by a staff member in the Volunteer Centre who will take both applications from organisations for the Corps and inform members of the Corps of upcoming projects and events.
