Corporate volunteering

Few charities offer better volunteering opportunities for supporters than Barretstown. We have a range of corporate volunteering opportunities to suit all staff.

Helping Hands Day

By booking a Helping Hands Workday your company will help prepare our camp’s beautiful 500 acre site for the arrival of our campers and families. Our corporate supporters have used this unique programme as a unique team building opportunity.

Barretstown Helping Hands Days can be held during the week all year round on days that our camps are not taking place. Volunteer tasks and projects include: landscaping, housekeeping, cottage preparation, trail maintenance, painting, spreading mulch, mending fences, and organising programme areas. Helping Hands workdays generally run from 10am-4pm and all participants receive an introductory talk and tour.

Helping Hands Days are reserved exclusively for corporate supporters who make a significant financial impact on the mission of camp to rebuild the lives of children affected by serious illness and their families.

Please be aware that Barretstown can only facilitate groups when we do not have children and families on site. The months of May and September are typically very busy for team building visits, as the Summer has very limited availability because of our camp schedule. We will do our best to accommodate your group but the more notice you can give us the more likely we can secure a date for your team.

Event Volunteering

Barretstown organise a fantastic array of fundraising events each year. We are always looking to recruit staff from our partners to give their time and help out in any way they can. So if you fancy yourself as a marshal at our Dublin Mountain Challenge, hosting an activity at our Sports Day, correcting the questions at our Corporate Quiz or selling raffle tickets at our Family Fun Day we have a job for you and your colleagues.

Volunteer from your office
