Support young people facing loneliness and isolation with Volunteer Ireland

‘’Please help address the rising issue of loneliness, exclusion and isolation among young people by participating in this short consultation for a new Erasmus+ project 'Stop Loneliness -Start Volunteering'.
Aimed at volunteer involving organisations that engage youth volunteers and/or provide services or activities for youths, your response is important to us in demonstrating the importance of volunteering when it comes to helping reduce loneliness and isolation among youths. 

GIVE YOUR INPUT HERE  - (it'll be 10 mins of your time max.)

The main goals of this project include:

  • To raise awareness of how volunteering can prevent and help alleviate social isolation in youths. 
  • Provide a way to empower volunteer involving organisations engaging youth volunteers and/or providing services or activities to youths. 
  • Share the learning of effective practices (including digital volunteering) in reducing loneliness and isolation with youth organisations across Europe.
  • And more … 

By providing us with your input, you’ll be instrumental in shaping the project going forward as at these initial stages, we need your experience, opinions and suggestions. ‘’

Thanks in advance.
