Visit from Slovenia and Republic of Ireland.

23 June 2014

Volunteer Now was visited by representatives of the Institute of Intergenerational Integration "Golden Years" and the Intergenerational Centre Celje from Slovenia and Roscomon Young Carers in the Republic of Ireland.

This was a study visit hosted by Newry and Mourne Carers and an opportunity for these organisations to learn about Volunteer Now voluntary projects around Befriending, Transport Buddying, Intergenerational practice, Timebanking and Youth Volunteering. The participants enjoyed their visit and are keen to develop a partnership some time in the future where good practice around innovative projects that meet the needs of the community can be shared.
