At Cork ARC Cancer Support House volunteers are the lifeblood of our organisation.
Our services can only continue to be delivered free of charge with the continued support of our volunteer listeners, counsellors, therapists and fundraisers.
Our volunteer listeners and therapists receive extensive induction and training to the centre and all of our counsellors and therapists have achieved professional accreditation in their disciplines.
Volunteers are fundamental to the success of our story and the generosity and commitment of our wonderful team of volunteers is inspirational. Our volunteer team in Cork ARC began as a group of twelve, who immediately began meeting, listening and supporting people with cancer and their families. Today, with over 70 volunteers delivering services with the same commitment and enthusiasm, it is obvious from those that visit that this support is essential. The atmosphere of the house is created by this generosity of spirit and remains the thing that visitors mention time and time again.
At Cork ARC Cancer Support House we run a number of fundraising events throughout the year including Flag Days, Fun Runs and Bag Packing in stores around Cork.
To maximise the fundraising and promotional opportunities of our events, we rely on the generosity of volunteers. We would love to hear from you, your friends, schools, community organisations or companies who can spare an hour, a half-day or full-day to help us – and have a little fun along the way!
