Get Involved!

Support & Advocate

Our Friends and Volunteers Network is a means for everyone to get involved in the fight against poverty.
Friends and supporters help us in many ways from the running of our projects, fundraising, translating English<>French to maintenance in the office, special events, administration, family support and a whole lot more. Whether you like to work alone or in a group, in an office or outdoors, on the front line or in a support role, we can always use the help and we are flexible according to your available time and skills.
It is also a great way to meet new and interesting people!


International ATD Full-time Volunteer Corps members make a long-term commitment to working alongside families living in extreme poverty and are involved in activities and projects in Ireland and overseas. Members of the Volunteer Corps agree to live on same basic stipends and make themselves available to go where their expertise and skills are most needed. Families, couples and individuals of all ages, from a variety of backgrounds and with an assortment of practical skills and qualifications, make up this diverse group of dedicated, full-time workers. There are a number of steps to joining the Volunteer Corps, the first being involvement in ATD activities and projects here in Ireland.

    Our work would not be possible without the generous financial support of ATD supporters around the world. 

    ATD Ireland is a registered charity committed with ATD International to the highest standard of efficiency and transparency in our financial transactions.

    ATD has a strong financial identity and ethos: ATD staff members are all members of the ATD International Volunteer Corps. They agree on a minimum wage salary which is the same for everyone within the same country, regardless of seniority or responsibility. For Ireland in 2018, the annual gross salary for a single person would be about €18,000, based on a calculation of a €780 a month stipend along with rent support.
