our volunteer roles

Throughout Inspire, we have many opportunities for you to utilise your talents, skills or experience to add value to the delivery of our services, or to help us raise public awareness. Here are some of the roles we have to offer you.

Support – You will support staff and engage with service users and encourage them to take on new challenges that will allow them to reach their full potential. You will motivate and encourage service users to participate in scheme activities.

Facilitator – You will facilitate and deliver group sessions in a range of activities such as arts & crafts, plan events and outings and support staff and other volunteers in the delivery of care and support to service users

Holistic Therapist - To provide a range of holistic therapies to service users for relaxation purposes and to promote wellbeing. Volunteers need recognised qualifications and certificates in relation to therapies being offered. 

Befriender - 1-1 befriending where you will be matched with a resident/service user and you will offer individual support on a regular basis. This could be a simple as a chat and a cup of tea or helping with shopping; visiting the library; going for a walk or other social activities.

Polish Interpreter – To provide support and assistance to Polish speaking service users and families who use Inspires services. At present this opportunity is for the Co Sligo region only.

Gardening – Volunteers with a love of gardening work alongside service users helping  them to grow flowers, fruit and vegetables and assisting with general gardening tasks e.g. maintaining beds and borders. Some services would welcome help with polytunnels too.

Administration – Provide administrative support in a busy office environment

This is not a definitive list and roles can be adapted to suit the skills and experience you bring to Inspire. Please contact the Volunteer Co-ordinator for further information – 042 938 5736 or volunteeringroi@inspirewellbeing.ie
