What is the Corps

The notion of a county-wide volunteer corps was mooted originally in the “ideas campaign” run during 2009. However, the idea became more focused during the recent bad weather events in Ireland, when many volunteers expressed an interest in “doing something” to help out in their community but were unable to find a formal way of being involved.

Also, with 2011 being the European Year of Volunteering, we are hoping to create project in South Dublin County that will have a lasting effect after the year.

The South Dublin County Volunteer Corps is a project  being run jointly by South Dublin County Council and South Dublin County Volunteer Centre.
