270 volunteers give over 31,000 hours in our services each year.
Involving volunteers in Depaul helps to support our holistic approach to working with people who are homeless and at risk of homelessness. This involves providing emotional support and practical help.
The Depaul volunteer department is dedicated to maintaining a quality programme where volunteers and service users alike can unlock their potential and learn from each other in a supportive environment.
We pride ourselves on developing exciting volunteer opportunities for potential volunteers from all walks of life. We thrive to maintain best practice in all areas of our work from recruitment to onsite support to ensure that our volunteers have the best possible experience and gain a thorough understanding of our work.
Depaul provides services to a wide range of client groups and we would not be able to provide added value services for them without the time, energy and commitment of our volunteers.
In 2015 Depaul became the first cross-border charity to achieve the Investing in Volunteers (IiV) standard mark for good practice in volunteering.
