Volunteer with Solas
The Solas Centre Waterford requires volunteers
The Solas Centre Waterford provides the highest quality cancer support services to people of Waterford and the South East. These support services include counselling, relaxation therapies and group support services which are provided at the Solas Centre. We provide those affected by cancer, their families and carers with a safe place; a place to talk things over, to relax and express emotions. We could not provide these services without the support of our volunteer colleagues.
The volunteer role involves:
• Welcoming visitors to the centre
• Answering telephone enquiries and listening attentively
• Providing refreshments for visitors to the centre
• Light housekeeping duties
• Representing the Solas centre at Fundraising events
• Volunteers are also asked to carry out some minimal administrative tasks
In order to become a Solas Centre volunteer, applicants must complete an assessment process which includes the following:
• Written application
• Garda clearance
• Reference checks
• To attend training
My name is Frances and I am a volunteer with the Solas Centre for the last 5 years.
The benefit of being a volunteer in the Solas Centre for me is I feel I am doing something that matters.
It provides me with a great sense of accomplishment and pride, plus it’s a feel good factor to be part of such a worthy organisation and to work with a great team of people.
Volunteering is very rewarding and fulfilling and what better way is there to connect with the community and give a little back……..
