Celebrating and Supporting our Volunteers!

In advance of National Volunteering week 2021, Ballyhoura Development wishes to acknowledge the outstanding work carried out by volunteers across the Ballyhoura region during the pandemic. This year more than ever it is extremely important to recognize, celebrate and thank the volunteers for the unprecedented work they carry out.

In order to support the volunteers in this work, Ballyhoura Development is running three workshops on burnout prevention and self-care techniques. This course is to aid volunteers who have been active in their communities during the pandemic.
