Very happy to work with the lovely crew at Louth Volunteer Centre. It has opened up new challenges for me and my contribution is always appreciated.
Volunteering led me to a career change, connected me with people i would have never have met in my day to day life and led me to see the good that is in local communities.
Volunteering helped me feel part of the community after moving here. Made friends and felt less lonely and isolated.
Volunteers are a major factor in our community, a phone call, a drop into an older person can be the difference between a lonely day and a brighter one
I've just recently started volunteering as a meals on wheels driver. I thoroughly enjoy it and look forward to other opportunities as a volunteer.

I am an international student at DKIT, so I got a chance to register in Louth Volunteer Centre, then lots of chances to give a hand. For example, at Dundalk 10K, Park Run, Order Of Malta etc. Amazing experience.
Volunteering with the Red Cross has been a great experience. I have gained some very useful skills in First Aid. Everyone should try it.
I started volunteering four and a half years ago. It has been an amazing experience, learning new skills, meeting new people, keeping socially active, giving back to the community, working with a wonderful team, the rewards are countless.
Great challenge, enjoyable, looks good on C,V.
Being a volunteer has really improved my skills in interacting with people and engaging in the community. I am very happy
I volunteered in Dublin for 6 years with the Gaa before moving to Dundalk. The Volunteer centre has helped me feel like part of the community by volunteering with local organisations.
Volunteering this year has given me a different and positive perspective. It has given me the opportunity to contribute positively to my community and to meet some many unsung heroes and organisations like SOSAD who are really making a difference in the community.
Volunteering has really helped me in meeting people and learning different skills in interacting and communicating with them"
Volunteering was a great social outlet for me. It was very enjoyable and gave me a reason to get out of the house during the week. It really built my confidence and got me job ready. It was great crack and I was sorry to have to give it up when I got a full time job. I really enjoyed giving back to an organisation that helped me out in the past.
I love helping at events as they are usually great fun and there is a sense of community among the group of volunteers. It gives me a purpose and a sense that I am helping the enjoyment of people going to events.
Volunteering has enhanced my graphic design skills in Adobe Photoshop. It has also allowed me to work in an environment which is both friendly and relaxed. Volunteering has allowed me be apart of a team and to meet many different people.
"I found it very difficult to meet people at first and was staying in the house all the time. Volunteering built my confidence and made me very happy, Coming back home after volunteering I was very happy. It improved my self confidence. My children were very happy that I was going out and meeting people. It improved my knowledge of life in Ireland. It also improved my chances of gaining employment as employers could see I was prepared to go out and work. It looks very good on my C.V. My last volunteering position was with The Soup Kitchen in Drogheda. I met so many people who were homeless. It was so good to talk with them and know I was helping."
Volunteer work has helped me integrate into a new community and learn new skill along the way. The pleasure it gives me keeps me going back after nearly a year. I enjoy spending time with senior citizens and hearing about the changes they have witnessed in their life time. Will do it for as long as I can Thank You Louth Volunteer Centre for the introduction.
4 Months in the greatest remark I can make is I wish I had become active in attempting to alleviate the struggles of others sooner as their is no greater fulfillment than that of the gift of generosity.
It's giving me the opportunity to give something back to the community, understand better the community and society better as well as improve my confidence and self esteem.
Service to others is the good way to get reward from God.
Volunteering gives me the experience I may need when applying for paid employment
Volunteering has made me feel I am contributing to new ventures and the community as a whole while also connecting with other people I would not have met otherwise.
I feel that doing charity work gives me confidence to meet new people and a new challenge in my life to help others in need.
