The work of Down Syndrome Ireland would not be possible without the help of hundreds of volunteers around the country giving their time, energy and commitment to further our objectives.  Down Syndrome Ireland use volunteers in a wide variety of ways and are always looking for new and enthusiastic recruits.  Whether your experience lies in administration, fund-raising, organisation or you simply want to give your time to a good cause then this is a wonderful opportunity to make a difference while meeting interesting people and having some fun!

No previous experience is necessary and positions are available on a nationwide basis- volunteers will be fully trained, can choose their own hours and location.

If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the Application Form and take note of the conditions below.

Thank you for considering Down Syndrome Ireland.
