Supporting you

We believe strongly in making sure our volunteers are supported in every way. We will always be in touch with you while you’re overseas and we can link you up with a returned volunteer who can offer experienced advice and a listening ear.

In terms of funding, VC applies to its funders to support overseas vacancies, although not all roles receive funding. If a funding allocation is secured for your overseas role you will receive a contribution towards flights, insurance, vaccinations, visas, etc., and a monthly local living allowance.

All volunteers are provided with accommodation, electricity, water and use of transport if possible or appropriate.

It is usually necessary for volunteers to undertake fundraising before going overseas on assignment, and we will support you with this as much as possible.

While overseas many volunteers are entitled to claim PRSI contributions from the Department of Social Protection
