A number of the partners in Tipperary’s Response Team (Tipperary Public Participation Network, Tipperary Volunteer Centre and Tipperary County Council) have worked to provide Insurance Cover to Community Groups who are undertaking such sterling work in these unprecedented time.
If you are a community group who is currently undertaking voluntary work or hopes to undertake volunteer work during the current crisis your group may be eligible for cover under this insurance. The first step in the process is to register with the following two agencies( if you have not already done so):
Registerwith the Tipperary PPN (if you are not already registered) through the PPN Website https://www.ppntipperary.org/
Register with Tipperary Volunteer Centre (if you are not already registered) you may do so by emailing email@example.com or check out their website at http://volunteertipperary.ie/
In registering this also ensures that volunteers access all of the latest advice and guidance on best practices in relation to volunteering.
