Volunteer with us

Volunteers play a huge part in the ongoing success of The Ballycastle Community Development Group. Whether volunteering for a day or two throughout the year or for a few hours here and there,

we can find something for you!

There's all sorts you can do – but we can’t do anything without you!

Do you have some time to spare and want to make a difference?

Do you want to develop your work skills, or share existing ones to help us?

Why Is Volunteering a Great Thing To Do?

It's a great way to meet new friends, learn new skills, understand what it is like to work in the Charity sector or simply a way to 'do good' and make a difference to your local community in Ballycastle. We welcome all volunteers - people of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels.  We participate in a range of events throughout the year - and raise vital funds to sustain our work.

We always need volunteers to help us with community events, so if you can spare a bit of time occasionally and would like to help we would love to hear from you!

If you have some time to spare and would like to find out more about how you can help us please get in touch

COVID-19 Volunteers

Join our database of volunteers

Lots of people are getting in touch wanting to support others in response to the Covid-19 outbreak. We think that’s brilliant. We want sure that everyone who can give their support is able to do so safely and where it will be most useful.

We are helping by gathering together the efforts of everyone to ensure that we have a database of volunteers to call on when required. If you're healthy and low risk, you can sign-up on the form below to become a Ballycastle Covid-19 Community Volunteer and help others in the town when required.

Volunteers can offer practical support such as drivers for shopping deliveries, making check-in phone calls, dog walking or you can share specific skills.

We have developed some example roles which we feel will be required. When you sign up, you can express a preference for any of these but of course the situation we all face is changing rapidly so over the long term we will be asking for to volunteers to sign up for other opportunities as well.

So please read our volunteer guidelines below and government guidelines to help safely then complete the simple form and we will touch when your help is required.

This is a fast moving situation and of course it is a very busy time so please bear with us.

Thank you for your support and your willingness to help. We will get through this by working together.
