Volunteer Expo Wexford
“We make our living by what we get, but we make our life by what we give.” Winston Churchill
There has been a great tradition of volunteerism across County Wexford for many decades, however as a result of the pandemic, the demand for services provided by local Charities and Community Groups has increased significantly. As a result, many of our volunteer led organisations urgently need to recruit more volunteers to enable them to meet the demand for their services.
Furthermore, many people may not be aware of the wide range of skills that are needed by our local community sector. The Volunteer Expo provides a unique opportunity to meet with the diverse range of organisations that are operating across County Wexford and to gain and understanding of the important services which they provide.
Volunteer Expo Wexford is a unique event that harnesses the power of volunteering across the County. This event provides a one-stop shop to discover all the ways to give back to your local community. If you’ve ever wanted to make a difference but weren’t sure where to start, whether you’re looking for a one-time volunteer opportunity or a longer-term commitment, to help out in the background or take a client facing role – Volunteer Expo Wexford is a must attend event.
Taking place on February 23rd 2023 (5pm-8pm) in The Talbot Hotel in Wexford town, Volunteer Expo will connect, educate and inspire volunteers, organisations and charities to change lives and take action in their communities.

Hosted by The Rotary Club of Wexford
Volunteer Expo Wexford is facilitated by The Rotary Club of Wexford, with support from our partners, Volunteer Centre Wexford, South East Radio and The Talbot Hotel.
As one of the world’s leading membership and humanitarian service organisations, Rotary has been at the heart of communities around the world for over 100 years and has made a meaningful difference in the Wexford community for over 40 years.
Rotary members worldwide give over 110 million volunteer hours each year, whether it is promoting peace, providing clean water, supporting education or fighting disease.
This event is the brainchild of Karl Fitzpatrick, who stated “Volunteer Expo Wexford is a tangible way for The Rotary Club of Wexford to take our values to the greater community by providing a unique opportunity for charities/community groups to meet with motivated volunteers. Our inaugural Expo in January 2020 was a tremendous success and the overwhelming feedback from both exhibitors and attendees was for this to become an annual event. As we emerge from the pandemic, the demand for services provided by our charitable sector is at an all time high, so there has never been a more important time to facilitate this event.”
