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.
To highlight this contribution, there is a burst of activity during 1-7 June when a host of organisations from the public, private and charity sectors will hold parties and award ceremonies to thank their volunteers. and highlight their contribution to local groups and the wider community, while individuals are encouraged to use the Week to find out more about volunteering.
Everyone is invited to join this national celebration of volunteering, it's up to you to decide exactly how you join in.
If you are inspired by volunteering and would like to get involved in this national celebration there are lots of resources on this website, to help you do just that! Unlike many of the other fantastic volunteering websites, My Ten Days is unique in that it provides an initiative for small businesses to get involved with. By donating ten days paid leave to their team to do something amazing, the business is contributing the collective effort of the small business community.
Volunteers' Week is an initiative of Volunteering England, Wales Council for Voluntary Action, Volunteer Now and Volunteer Development Scotland.
