We have 18 full-time volunteers at any one time from Ireland and around the world giving their time, skills and experience to Cork Simon Community.

Volunteering full-time at Cork Simon is a rewarding experience. Every full-time volunteer leaves us at the end of their term with life-long friends, precious memories and unforgettable experiences.


Full-time volunteers at Cork Simon:

  • Commit 35 hours per week for at least 9 months – many stay longer.
  • Work alongside staff at our Emergency and Housing services.
  • Are offered accommodation and a weekly allowance.
  • Participate fully in all Cork Simon activities, including training and development. All Full-Time Volunteers participate in a Technological University Dublin (TUD) Certificate in Volunteering, which is delivered in-house at Cork Simon.

A number of Cork Simon's full-time volunteers are funded through the European Solidarity Corps  (ESC).
