Volunteers Needed for Media Research

 Volunteers Needed for Media Research and Project Co-ordination for One Family 40th Anniversary

One Family is Ireland’s leading organisation for one-parent families. Set up as Cherish in 1972, with Mary Robinson as Chairperson, we mark our 40th anniversary this year and have a number of campaigns and projects planned. We are looking for skilled volunteers or interns to help with the below projects:

  • 40 Stories – written project
    Job: Gather information and write up stories from former clients, of their experience of parenting alone or sharing parenting and of their experience with One Family.
  • An Oral History of One Family – audio project
    Job: Set up, record and edit interviews with the founders, early members and supporters of One Family.
  • Celebrating One-parent Families – major awareness-raising campaign
    Job: Gather together and write up profiles of 100 high profile people who live in or come from a one-parent family. To help change attitudes towards one-parent families, this campaign shares information on some of the many well known one-parent families that exist in Ireland and elsewhere.

If you are interested in volunteering your time free of charge for a great cause –  and feel you have the required skill-set for any of the above – please email your CV to  Many thanks!
