Coming Home Weekend 2018


The next Comhlámh Coming Home Weekend will take place on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 December 2018, at the Emmaus Centre in Swords.


Volunteers and development workers who have been on overseas placements for at least three months or more, are invited to attend this two day residential event in the relaxing surroundings of the Emmaus Centre.  The weekend is a chance to discuss the challenges and positive aspects of the overseas placement, with experience de-briefers and other returned volunteer development workers, from a range of different organisations.


Participants are given time to reflect on the overseas placement, and to begin to plan for future reengagement with development related matters here at home.  Time is given to assist people with the “coming home” stage of their volunteering and development work experience in a safe and relaxing environment.


The price for the weekend is 100 euro for non-members of Comhlámh and 50 euro for members of Comhlámh.  The price includes overnight accommodation, meals, snacks and soft drinks all through the weekend. For further information contact:
