Some volunteering opportunities

Street Outreach (Soup Run):

Novas’ Street Outreach programme operates seven nights a week, providing a hot meal, a kind word and support to marginalised people on the streets of Limerick City. Those availing of the service are among the most vulnerable in society. The programme is provided on a voluntary basis and currently a team of 50 volunteers assist with it. New applicants will receive training and support throughout their volunteering term. Apply Here.

Foodcloud Driver:
Novas is very fortunate to be part of the Foodcloud Programme Рwww.foodcloud.ie. Each evening we benefit from donations of unsold food at various Tesco’s around the country. These donations are collected by a team of volunteers and dropped to a designated service. This team are also called upon from time to time to carry out ad hoc driving requirements. Applicants for this role must have a full clean driving licence and be over 25 years of age. Apply Here.

Fundraising plays a vital role in maintaining the services Novas provide throughout the country. We are always looking for people who are interested in supporting Novas for a series of different events throughout the year. If you are interested in organising or taking part in one of the many runs throughout the country, coordinating a table quiz, charity sports event, taking part in street collections, bag packing or any other event, please let us know. All money raised goes directly to maintaining our services. Apply Here.
