Cork Volunteer Centre focus groups

Cork Volunteer Centre focus groups

The Department of Rural and Community Development recently launched a ‘Call for Input’ (CFI) paper which outlines the current state of volunteering and asks a number of questions about how volunteering can be developed in the future. 

The purpose of this document is to:
§  Inform stakeholders of the proposed volunteering strategy;
§  Seek views from stakeholders on what constitutes volunteering;
§  Invite comments and proposals on the CFI including additional and emerging considerations which may further inform the Strategy.

The outcome of this CFI and potentially the input from a proposed National Advisory Group will inform the Department’s development of this volunteering strategy.
To ensure your voice is heard, Cork Volunteer Centre will be hosting a number of focus groups across the county to get your views and formulate a response.
This is your opportunity to have a say by inputting directly into the National Strategy.
Focus groups will be held across the county:
