Volunteer training supports from Cork Sports Partnership: starts Monday 23rd

Cork Sports Partnership has teamed up with the Cork Volunteer Centre to host 8 FREE Volunteer Support workshops and training sessions over the coming months.


The current environment has placed considerable pressure on the community and voluntary sector and the ever-changing circumstances means that administering volunteering roles, responsibilities and opportunities is adapting all the time. These workshops and training sessions seek to support the many individuals, organisations and agencies that involve volunteers across Cork communities.
