Our volunteers are the heart and soul of St Pat’s – the various services we provide would not be possible without the help of volunteers. If you are interested in offering your time and skills to make a real difference in the community, we would love to have you on board!
Who are we looking for?
Above all, we are looking for volunteers who are passionate about making a positive impact in the lives of others in their community.
Additionally, if you have any specific skills that you would like to use for good, whether it be in graphic design, social media or another area of expertise, please let us know and we may be able to personalise your volunteer role.
The many volunteer roles available at St Pat’s have varying levels of time commitment ranging from one or two days a week to one-off special events. The roles also differ in the sectors they are involved in, from administration to direct contact with clients of St Pat’s.
