I would like to organise a fundraising event for St. Joseph’s – What do I have to do?
Firstly, you must contact the Fundraising Department and complete the “fundraising-proposal” form. Once this is done, the fundraising department will contact you to discuss your proposed event.
Will I be on my own collecting money?
No. You will not be on your own selling tickets or collecting money – we always endeavour to have two people together at all times.
Do I have to commit to a certain length of time?
No. You can decide “when” and “how long” you wish to involved. However if you commit to doing ticket selling on the street for 2 hours, you would be required to wait until the next people on the rota come to do their stint.
How often would my help be required?
See our “getting involved” section and decide what suits you best and where you would like to help.
Who can volunteer?
Anyone from the age of 18 who is willing to share their valuable time, energy, enthusiasm and skills within St. Joseph’s Foundation, provided they meet the criteria set out (i.e. Garda Clearance, application form, referees, an informal meeting with our Volunteer Co-ordinator and most importantly, a genuine interest in people who have a disability). No particular qualifications are needed, just a willingness to make a reliable commitment. Anyone aged between 16to 18 years old please search the Saturday Club, Work Experience or Best Buddie Programmes.
How much time will I need to give?
The amount of time is up to each volunteer. Volunteers are needed 24/7 within the service. We do, however, ask that you commit to at least an hour, twice a month for six months as a minimum.
Will I receive training?
Very simple - just set it in the list-header (the edit-button where you can change the title).
What support will I receive?
The Volunteer Co-ordinator and St. Joseph’s staff and will work closely with you. You will have regular opportunities to review your experience.
