Become a Volunteer

If you would like to volunteer to work directly with older people, our Cúltaca service will match you to an older person in the community. Cúltaca volunteers provide a valuable social link for older people who are lonely or isolated, visiting usually in the homes of the older person. They principally provide social interaction for the older person with conversation and reminiscing in a relaxed environment. Social events organised for the older men's and women's groups will also require volunteers to help out. Basic qualities for volunteering are good communication skills, empathy, reliability and the realisation of the vulnerability of the older person.

All our volunteers receive induction training and regular support. It is our policy to vet volunteers who will work with older people. This process is managed by An Garda Siochana Vetting Office and will take approximately 6 weeks. Potential volunteers will be interviewed prior to working with older people and two references are required, which are also vetted by an Garda Síochana.
