Get Connected!

This project, run by Dublin City Volunteer Centre with partners in Scotland, Belgium and Croatia, sets out to take a closer look at what impact volunteering can have on people and their feeling of connectedness with their local communities, their attitudes and their general well-being. Franzi Fehr will tell you how you can get involved!
