Daffodil Centre Volunteers Needed

irish-cancer-society

The Irish Cancer Society is looking for new volunteers to help out at its Daffodil Centres in Dublin, specifically in Beaumont Hospital, St. James’ Hospital, St. Luke’s Rathgar and St. Vincent’s University Hospital. The Daffodil Centres are walk-in cancer information centres for cancer patients, their families and anyone concerned about cancer. All centres are located on-site in the hospital and are run by Irish Cancer Society specialist cancer nurses and trained volunteers. The Daffodil Centres in Dublin form part of a network of 13 centres across the country.

Volunteers are asked to commit to a morning or afternoon (four hours) once a week and there is no requirement for volunteers on the weekend. Following successful interviews, volunteers will be asked to attend four days of training.

For more information or to apply to become a trained Daffodil Centre volunteer, please contact Deirdre Murphy, Survivor Support and Volunteer Coordinator on (01) 2310 564 or email dmurphy@irishcancer.ie
