Kerry Volunteer Centre 7 Maine Street, Tralee.

Kerry Volunteer Centre believes that in order for volunteering to thrive in Kerry and Ireland:

- everyone who wants to volunteer should have the opportunity to do so. 

- volunteers need to be appropriately managed and celebrated.

- The support needs of Volunteer Involving Organisations needs to recognised and met locally.

- the social, cultural and economic contribution of volunteering needs to be measured.

- the impact of volunteering in Ireland must be recorded in order to be valued.

Driven by these core beliefs, the Kerry Volunteer Centre has been at the forefront of developments to advance, strengthen and support volunteers. We do not let the smallness of our team, the littleness of our funding  nor the enormity of any challenge deter us from doing what is needed and is best for volunteering in Kerry.
