The National Volunteering Strategy (2021 - 2025)
sets out a long-term vision for volunteering and volunteers in Ireland. With actions to be implemented over five years, the Strategy sets out a general direction for government policy in relation to the volunteers and the volunteering environment. It also builds upon and strengthens the renewed relationship and partnership between Government and the voluntary sector, which developed during the course of its preparation. 2021 was the first full year of the Strategy. The Annual Update provides a concise summary of progress made during 2021 on the implementation of actions in the Strategy.
