There has been a great tradition of volunteerism across County Wexford for many decades, however many of our volunteer led organisations struggle to recruit a sufficient number of volunteers to enable them to meet the demand for their services.
Furthermore, there are many people who would be willing to offer their skills and experience to their local community if they were aware of the volunteer needs of local organisations.
Volunteer Expo Wexford is a new event, to harness the power of volunteering across the County.
This event provides a one-stop shop to discover all the ways to give back to your community. If you’ve ever wanted to make a difference but weren’t sure how, the Volunteer Expo is a great place to start – whether you’re looking for a one-time volunteer opportunity or a longer-term commitment.
Taking place at 5pm-8pm on 28th January 2020 in The Talbot Hotel in Wexford town, Volunteer Expo will connect, educate and inspire volunteers, organisations and charities to change lives and take action in their communities.
For visitors who are keen to volunteer, or already do so, there will be an opportunity to network with local charities and community groups that need your help, develop your personal skills and turn your passion for change into action.
For exhibitors, Volunteer Expo Wexford is a valuable opportunity to meet new and existing volunteers, network with like-minded organisations from the charity and private sectors, raise your organisations profile and showcase your work to the community.
Registration for both attendees and exhibitors is now open on volunteerexpowexford.ie
Volunteer Expo is being organised by The Rotary Club of Wexford.

President of The Rotary Club of Wexford, Karl Fitzpatrick stated “The Volunteer Expo Wexford is a tangible way for The Rotary Club of Wexford to take our values to the greater community by providing a unique opportunity for charities and community groups to meet with potential volunteers and ultimately to increase the number of volunteers across the Model County.”
