About Us

Roscommon LEADER Partnership funded the development of this website to specifically promote the concept of volunteering in County Roscommon. There is no Volunteer Centre in Roscommon and it is hoped that this website will act as a catalyst to encourage volunteering amongst all age groups and to act as a conduit to match suitable volunteers with host organisations. 

The overall aim of the website is to increase the numbers volunteering in the County and promote volunteering as a rewarding and fulfilling activity. The website also includes information on training available to volunteers and volunteer organisations, upcoming events and latest news, together with links to other relevant sites.



Roscommon LEADER Partnership (also known as RIDC – Roscommon Integrated Development Company) is a relatively new organisation that brings together key development projects including rural enterprise and development and social inclusion that work for the betterment of the people of Co. Roscommon. Our responsibilities include the delivery of the Rural Development Programme (RDP) also known as LEADER and the Local and Community Development Programme (LCDP). We also operate programmes funded by other departments and agencies, such as RSS, TUS and Warmer Homes.
