We are always looking for new, motivated individuals with an interest in the cause of Spinal Injuries Ireland to join our team.
We need volunteers for Fundraising, as well as volunteers for our Sports and Social Activities Programme. Joining our team means joining an Irish disability charity at an exciting time of change and growth for us and helping our charity develop into the future.
Fundraising and Events Volunteering
We are currently recruiting volunteers for our Fundraising and Events Committees in Dublin, Cork and Galway, as well as occasional Fundraising Volunteers who would be called on to help us with collections and events.
We are looking for event organisers, face to face fundraisers, PR specialists, and champions for our fundraising volunteer team. We are looking for people with previous experience in events, fundraising, marketing, communications, public relations and/or other related activities. We are asking for a basic commitment of 10 to 15 hours per month for committee members.
Our committee members will meet once a month and be a fully integrated part of our organisation. Committee members will be appointed to the role for 12 months.
All volunteers and committee members must be Garda vetted.

Sports and Social Activities Volunteering
Active Me is the Sports and Social Activities Programme at the National Rehabilitation Hospital that provides an opportunity for newly injured patients to realise and rediscover personal potential and achievement. Spinal Injuries Ireland runs a variety of activities including adaptive kayaking, powerboating, scuba diving, airsoft and offers social outings and trips such as cinema visits, sports matches and shopping trips.
Spinal Injuries Ireland currently needs minibus drivers, cinema and shopping companions, land based sports volunteers and water sports volunteers.
We will provide full training on spinal cord injury (SCI) and your area of volunteer work, a
valuable understanding of the disability sector in Ireland, direction and support from supervisors and the opportunity to make a difference in the daily lives of people with a SCI.
