Volunteer Globally

Our global volunteering programme is an amazing opportunity to work alongside families in need of a decent place to call home.

Every year, volunteers from across Ireland travel to support our partner programmes around the world. They experience firsthand the impact of poverty housing and help make a lasting difference to families in need. We hope to encourage volunteers to become a voice for safe shelter when they return home; inspiring others to help us reach many more families in need.
