European Voluntary Service
Each year we welcome international volunteers through the European Voluntary Service (EVS) Programme
This programme is part of the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme and is funded by the European Commission. It allows people from 18 to 30 to spend from two months up to one year overseas, taking part in various volunteering projects.
Placements at Belfast & Lisburn Women’s Aid are normally full-time for 12 months and start in the summer each year.
Every volunteer receives support from the European Commission which covers all costs from travel and accommmodation to food and insurance, and also provides the volunteer with a small monthly allowance.
For specific question about EVS with Women’s Aid, contact Mary Hegarty from Bryson Charitable Group
Esther from Spain and Zdenka from Czech Republic are currently undertaking their placements for 2017-18.
