About SVP Society

The aim of MU's SVP Society is to tackle poverty in all its forms through practical assistance to those in need. Therefore, visiting and engaging with those in need plays a huge part of the society; we also host various fundraising events in aid of SVP throughout the year. Not only that, but there is a huge social element at the heart of the society as we know how important it is for students to have a place to unwind and meet friends new and old. MU SVP is a relaxed, easy-going and flexible society- you can get involved as much or as little as you like!

Some of the volunteering activities that the society runs include Street Outreach visits to the homeless in Dublin, bagpacking and homework clubs. The ability to partake in these volunteering opportunities depends on the numbers that complete Garda Vetting applications, so the sooner you join the faster you will be able to start! The society also offers the opportunity to volunteer with Ozanam House and Sunshine House who run day camps and holiday camps for disadvantaged children and teenagers throughout the summer.

The society organises various social and fundraising events such as coffee mornings, craft and movie nights, pub quizzes, bingo, nights out, intervarsities, bake sales, food drives, donation appeals, and fun runs. We host social justice discussions, guest speakers and SVP workshops to raise awareness of the issues faced by those in need across Ireland. The society teams up with other University SVP Conferences throughout the year and we host multiple dedicated awareness and fundraising weeks throughout the year including Homelessness Week and the Christmas Appeal.

All MU students- of any race, religion, ethnicity, or sexuality- are welcome and encouraged to join.

So join today!
