Aware seeking Waterford volunteers

Aware, Ireland's leading organisation providing support, education and information services for those impacted by depression and bipolar disorder, is urgently seeking Waterford volunteers for its Support & Self Care Group service in Waterford city and Dungarvan. Aware relies on the passion and dedication of its volunteers to ensure that the organisation can continue to provide free support services nationwide, essential services that have a profound impact on individuals and families throughout Ireland.
