Get Involved



Derry~Londonderry’s year as UK City of Culture will provide countless opportunities for people to become involved as volunteers.

The North West Volunteer Centre, with support from Derry City Council, Ilex  and Culture Company 2013, will manage the recruit of volunteers throughout the year.

A Volunteer Action Plan was launched in May 2012 to help co-ordinate the efforts of volunteers throughout 2013 and beyond. The action plan sets out a detailed strategy for how people can become involved in the City of Culture.

Volunteers are needed to work in a huge number of different roles throughout the year including in areas of first aid, disability equality, child protection, crowd control, customer service, multi-lingual welcoming amongst many others.

To ensure volunteers are fully valued and supported, a specific code of Good Practice, has been developed which enables the recruitment, selection, training, and management of volunteers to be conducted at a high standard.
