Welcome to Volunteering at Special Olympics Ireland.

Your involvement and contribution as a volunteer will help change the lives of our athletes in their local communities across the island of Ireland.

Through sport, athletes develop both physically and emotionally, they make new friends, realise their dreams, and know they can fit in. As a volunteer with us, you enable athletes to achieve and win not only in sport but in life too. Special Olympics values and needs your involvement in many areas of the programme from raising awareness to:

  • volunteering at our events
  • volunteering in our clubs
  • volunteering to raise much needed funds

We appreciate the commitment, time, energy, and skills you bring.

As of Tuesday 18th October the Online Volunteer Registration Process will be suspended to facilitate maintenance and will be available online again on Tuesday 1st November
