Cookstown & Magherafelt

History
The Cookstown & Magherafelt Volunteer Centre was founded in June 2000 and is a registered charity limited by guarantee. A need was identified to provide other services such as community transport and a volunteer bureau. At first, it was perceived as a heading under the auspices of Mid Ulster Community Services, namely Out and About. However, further meetings resulted in the services of the Volunteer Bureau becoming a separate entity. An audit carried out previously had identified a need for a volunteering structure in both Cookstown & Magherafelt. Early support came from the Volunteer Development Agency, Cookstown District Partnership and Magherafelt Area Partnership.
