Volunteers Week

Volunteers' Week is an annual event which celebrates the fantastic contribution that millions of volunteers make across the UK.

The Week plays a huge part in raising the profile of the millions of volunteers who regularly contribute to society, while inspiring others to get involved too.

Volunteers' Week is an initiative of the volunteer development agencies working across the UK: National Council for Volunteering Organisations (NCVO, Wales Council for Voluntary Action, Volunteer Now and Volunteer Development Scotland.

Each year more and more organisations get involved in the Week and participants take part in various events throughout the UK. These range from award presentations to setting-up information booths or sponsored walks and team challenge events with everything in between!
