Volunteer at an Irish Cancer Society charity shop

Irish Cancer Society charity shop

The Irish Cancer Society has shops all over Ireland - and they depend heavily on volunteer support. Volunteering in our shops is a great way to support a worthy cause and widen your circle of friends.

Volunteer with us

While our shops are closed, we are looking for expressions of interest to volunteer in our shops when they reopen. Register your interest by emailing Volunteer Coordinator Mary Quinn at volunteer@irishcancer.ie stating which shop you are interested in volunteering. 

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.

About our shops

The Irish Cancer Society has 21 shops all over Ireland. Every shop needs around 30 part-time helpers.

What's involved in volunteering in an Irish Cancer Society shop?

If you’re interested in helping out, and you have three hours or more to spare each week, we’d love to hear from you.

We’ll provide you with full training, so no prior experience is needed. 

How to apply
