Volunteering Opportunities

Operating in Terenure for over 50 years, Merrick House relies on active and passionate volunteers, along with our experienced, dedicated staff, to manage our house, and support our residents to live independently in a safe, comfortable environment.

Increased regulation, mandatory social housing obligations, and the impact of Covid-19 have added greatly to the administrative demands on our volunteers’ time and resources, as well as to the work of our staff.

This heavier workload, while travel is limited, means we particularly welcome volunteers who live nearby. If you’d like to get involved in the work of Merrick House, please contact us on 01-490 9816, or email to assist in any of the following areas:
