Cara Volunteer Accepted

Cara is the Irish word for “friend.”

Congratulations and welcome to the volunteer cara team

Together we can truly help make a difference…

Welcome, we are thrilled and excited to have you as part of the Barretstown Team!

You have been chosen for your experience, creativity, empathy and enthusiasm that you can add to our programme. You will be part of a team that, together, can make a difference in the life of a child and help to rebuild the lives of children affected by serious illness and their families. Volunteers are integral to making camp happen. We could not do this work without you. Volunteers bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and fresh energy. Our volunteers come from all around the world and everyone will bring something unique to help our programme.

At Barretstown our focus is on ability, empathy and empowerment, to supporting each individual to challenge themselves and find success in a safe, fun and supportive environment.  Barretstown helps children to discover the courage they need to undertake the difficult journey through their illness and its treatment, and to encourage them to take part more actively in their own recovery process.

If you have questions or need further clarification on any of the information provided please do not hesitate to contact recruit@barretstown.org

We look forward to meeting and working with you.
Looking forward to seeing you soon
