Our full-time volunteers work alongside our staff and make a huge difference in our services through their contribution. In return for this, they learn valuable skills and experiences while building friends for life and memories that they never want to let go of.

Our full-time volunteers commit to 35 hours per week for a duration of 6-12 months and each of them are provided with:

EVS Volunteers

EVS (European Voluntary Service) is an international volunteer programme, managed by Léargas, which funds people from European countries to volunteer in a non-profit organisation in another European country, usually for a period of 6 to 12 months.

Every year, we have people who volunteer on a full-time basis through the EVS programme. All costs, including the pre-departure training, travel and accommodation are paid for; EVS volunteers also receive a small monthly allowance as ‘pocket money’ during their placement.
