TIME TO CELEBRATE

Volunteers' Week is a chance to celebrate and say thank you for the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK.

It takes place 1-7 June every year and is an opportunity to celebrate volunteering in all its diversity.

Volunteers' Week is a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make. During the week, hundreds of events and celebrations take place across the country, saying thank you to volunteers and recognising their invaluable and diverse contribution to the UK.

The campaign was established in 1984 by Volunteering England, which merged with NCVO in 2013. NCVO now leads this UK-wide campaign.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

Complete our Volunteer Survey

Help us gather insight on local volunteering.

We want to better understand what motivates our local volunteers and what support, training and recognition they receive. We also want to find out whether they are happy and satisfied volunteers that are receiving a quality experience - or not!

If you are a volunteer, we would be very grateful if you would complete this short survey. All respondents will be entered into PRIZE DRAW with the chance to win a £40 Shopping Voucher.
