Why Volunteer?


Galway Volunteer Centre wants to encourage people who wish to volunteer, but may feel anxious or want some support in getting started.

Reasons for Senior Citizens to Vounteer

Volunteering in your local community means that you get to socialise, make contact and meet new people on a regular basis. It can fill a void that is sometimes left after retiring, as well as giving structure to your week.
