New App Launched to Help People Volunteer
Volunteer Ireland and the network of Volunteer Centres have launched a new app, I-VOL, to help people find volunteer roles in their local area. The I-VOL app is available to download now in the App Store and Google Play Store. The app will allow people to find volunteer roles based on their location, interests and time available. Users will also be able to create a profile to keep track of roles they have applied for and log any volunteer hours they undertake

This is National Volunteering Week. Six Volunteer Ambassadors from Longford were chosen to highlight the impact Volunteering has had on their lives.
This is James Quinn's story: "Volunteering has allowed me to develop my interpersonal skills and to help those who need assistance. As a First Aid Volunteer I have been able to help people in a time of need. I enjoy helping as it gives me a great sense of satisfactions knowing I have done my best to provide a vital service. Volunteering for St. John’s Ambulance Ireland has improved my confidence in terms of meeting new people. Giving up my free time to learn new skills, knowing they are appreciated gives me the inspiration to do more. I hope it will encourage others to get involved in volunteering".
