Volunteer with The Down Syndrome Centre!

Would you like to volunteer with the Down Syndrome Centre and support the work of our team? Volunteers are crucial to the work that we do at The Down Syndrome Centre and your time and support will help us to continue our vital services.

There are many ways in which you can get involved with us – here are just a few!

Register to become a DSC Volunteer

Volunteers are a key members of The Down Syndrome Centre Team. We have a team of volunteers that help us at events, in service provision in our Centre and in fundraising. If you would like to volunteer with The Down Syndrome Centre you can contact Claire or Emma at info@downsyndromecentre.ie

Volunteering in the Centre

If you are someone with a relevant skill (Drama or Music Therapist, Dance Teacher etc) and would like to give us some of your time, our little service users would be so appreciative!

In the past we have had volunteers host free yoga classes, music classes and dance classes.

We are also frequently looking for volunteers to give us a hand with our Children’s Seasonal Workshops (during the Summer and at Easter).

All volunteers will have to be Garda Vetted.

Decorating the Centre

Our centre is over two floors which means we have a lot of wall space! We have been very lucky in the past to have some fantastic groups come in to the centre to paint and decorate and to create some very cool artwork for the children to enjoy.

We also have a substantial car park with shrubbery that needs to be maintained.

If you are interested in lending a DIY hand, sharing your artistic flair or rolling up your sleeves in our carpark, we would love to hear from you!
