Comlámh's mission is to foster good practice and critical engagement in volunteering and action for development. The ‘Comhlámh Code of Good Practice’ is a quality standard that promotes excellence in international volunteering.

Comhlámh Code of Good Practice Signatory

Signatory Category is for volunteer sending agencies who choose to become signatories to the Comhlámh Code of Good Practice to demonstrate to volunteers, overseas partners, funders and members of the public that they are seriously committed to implementing good practice in international volunteering. As a signatory to the Comhlámh Code of Good Practice (CoGP) volunteer sending agencies have certain responsibilities inline with the 11 Principles. Some campuses send volunteers overseas and have achieved the Signatory status.

Comhlámh Code of Good Practice Supporter

Signatory Category is for organisations that may not directly send volunteers overseas but choose to become supporters to the Comhlámh Code of Good Practice to demonstrate to volunteers, overseas partners, funders and members of the public that they are seriously committed to upholding good practice in international volunteering. studentvolunteer.ie is proud to be a Comhlámh Code of Good Practice Supporter and therefore all the volunteering opportunites on studentvolunteer.ie are in adherence to the Code and have Signatory status.
