Giving back to your community as a business is becoming increasingly important.

We can organise simple one-off or regular events for a small or large number of your employees.

Association of Independent Volunteer Centres
In 2010, volunteering in Northern Ireland changed when the Volunteer Development Agency merged with 15 regional volunteer centres to become ‘Volunteer Now’, a centralised unit for recruiting and managing volunteers.
Six local volunteer centres took the brave step to opt out of this merge, unimpressed by the lack of appreciation for the people centred and focussed approach.
Five of these centres have since established the Association of Independent Volunteer Centres (AIVC)…. Causeway Volunteer Centre, Cookstown & Magherafelt Volunteer Centre, Craigavon & Banbridge Volunteer Centre, Limavady Volunteer Centre and Omagh Volunteer Centre.
The AIVC is designed to protect the interests of a ‘people centred’ approach to volunteering. It is a well structured, strategically placed and passionate groups of volunteer centres that want to keep their independence and ensure that local organisations help provide local solutions to local needs.
