Volunteers are the backbone of Special Olympics and are needed in many different aspects of the organisation. Some volunteers help out with their local clubs on a weekly or daily basis, others become involved with larger events such as Regional or National Games - helping out with organising these events. Other volunteers help with fundraising, administration etc.

Arrow Decide how much time you can give can you help out every week, once a month, occasionally etc.

Arrow Think about how you would like to become involved for example with your local club as a coach or assistant, with organising fundraising events, with managing sports events and so on Special Olympics has a job to suit everyone!

Depending on your area of interest you will be put in contact with other volunteers who already work in that area or with your local club or committee.

 
  Arrow Volunteer Application Form  
  All information given on this form is confidential and is held for administration purposes only so that Special Olympics Ireland can make the best use of the skills that volunteers already have. Special Olympics Ireland is registered with the Data Protection Commission and abides by the guidelines and regulations of the Commission.

We currently have a backlog of volunteer applications to process due to the high interest volunteering following on from the 2003 World Games.  If you submit a form and do not hear from us for a while please don't worry - we will be in contact in due course!

- Adopt practices in line with Special Olympics Ireland
- Be aware of Health and Safety procedures
- Attend training events where appropriate
- Help promote awareness of Special Olympics Ireland
- Help provide a friendly and pleasant environment
- Act as a good role model
- Be encouraging and positive to athletes
