New Ross Standard - - COMMUNITY NEWS -


At SWWFRC we run projects with a group of core staff, a team of CE work­ers (of which there is al­ways space to join) and a ded­i­cated group of vol­un­teers. We are ask­ing for peo­ple to join us – sim­ply by of­fer­ing their time. A few hours a week can make a huge dif­fer­ence to the ser­vices we can of­fer. Full train­ing (if nec­es­sary) will be given. WE NEED YOU. If you can help, con­tact re­cep­tion for more de­tails. We look for­ward to hav­ing you on board.
