Galway Volunteer Centre to benefit from funding
The Galway Volunteer Centre is set to benefit from funding of €133,200, as part of an overall €3.5 million grant from the Department of Rural and Community Development, to support volunteering across the State.
The funding, which was approved by the Minister for Community Development, Natural Resources, and Digital Development, and Fine Gael Galway West TD, Seán Kyne, will support volunteer centres in 21 counties, as well as State-wide organisations like Volunteer Ireland and Young Social Innovators.
“Volunteering positively impacts every community across every city and county in Ireland with people contributing on a regular basis in all sorts of ways,” said Minister Kyne. “At a local level, centres such as the Galway Volunteer Centre play an essential role in facilitating volunteering by publicising opportunities and providing information and advice to volunteers and organisations.”
