Leitrim Bid for Volunteer Centre

posted in: Consultation, News | 0

Do you think that there is a need for a dedicated Volunteer Centre in Leitrim?
Leitrim Development Company is currently applying for a Volunteer Centre for Leitrim. A Volunteer Centre provides a link between people interested in volunteering and non-profit groups looking for volunteers. These  centres advertise for volunteers on behalf of groups and refer interested people to these groups.  A volunteer centre would have dedicated staff and facilities to carry out this service and others that would help community groups.
In order to assist with this, Leitrim Development Company would be grateful if your group, could take the time to fill out the questionnaire below and return it to them by the 18th May 2018.
