Work Placement Opportunities

Volunteering Opportunity

What is 50808?
We are a free nationwide anonymous 24 hour messaging service providing everything from a calming
chat to immediate support. This service is supported by the Health Service Executive (HSE). 50808 provides a safe space where texters are listened to by trained volunteers.
What do we offer?
We offer a safe, non-judgmental space where people can text us about anything that is making them
feel down. This is not just a platform for those in crisis situations such as being in physical danger from
others or to themselves. We have supported many people who are struggling with relationship
breakdowns, bereavement, feeling stuck in a rut, loneliness or simply feeling down and wanting to talk it
out with us.
More information is available here.
