One Year. 32 Counties. A Million Moments of Humanity...

On every day of the year, in every county across Ireland, our network of SVP volunteers are out there. They are people who share your same values of compassion and empathy. And they’re grateful to you for the vital and powerful part you play to bring help, hope, and humanity to people who are struggling —

"Thank you for putting smiles on our children's faces" — Liz, SVP Volunteer, Carrigtwohill Resource Centre

That's Liz's message of gratitude to you... From after-school clubs to homework help, Liz sees the life-changing support and opportunities you give children from disadvantaged families every day. Thank you for giving little ones a chance to break the cycle of poverty.

"We get around 200 people in here every day now... They can get a hot shower and cooked food to eat. We've seen a massive increase in people needing the service in these past few years. I don't know what we'd do without your help. But I know there'd be many more cold and hungry people in Limerick..." — Tom, Manager, Homeless Drop-In Centre
