Why Volunteer?

There are few experiences more powerful than making a wish come true

Make-A-Wish Ireland welcomes volunteers from all backgrounds and we currently have over 200 dedicated volunteers in all 26 counties of Ireland. By volunteering you can gain new skills, make new friends and have fun, all while enjoying the sense of reward that comes from making a difference and knowing you're helping to make wishes come true.

Without our volunteers, we would not be able to grant the wishes that we do, making so many wonderful memories for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families. Make-A-Wish volunteers grant wishes, raise money, and support our work across the country. We welcome individuals of all ages, backgrounds and cultures.

Volunteer Roles

Community Volunteer: As a community volunteer you will be involved in visiting wish children, participating in fundraising events and being an ambassador for Make-A-Wish in your area.

Fundraising: Volunteers support key fundraising events, hold their own fundraisers and help to raise awareness of the charity throughout the country.

School Visit Representatives: Volunteers visit schools on our behalf, presenting to students about Make-A-Wish Ireland and represent us at cheque presentations.
