Volunteering and Covid-19
The health and safety of our volunteers, staff, customers and service users, is our top priority.
Those who are in the Very High Risk category are asked not to engage in face-to-face volunteering with the Society at this time, until Government guidelines change. Current guidelines recommend that people in the Very High Risk category cocoon.
The Irish Cancer Society deeply values the contribution that volunteers make, and look forward to welcoming applications from those currently cocooning for face-to-face volunteering opportunities when guidance and risk circumstances change.
