Volunteers’ Week 2023

From the 1st June to 7th June, volunteers across the country are celebrated!

Volunteers’ Week 2023 is a time to celebrate and inspire. With the aim to highlight that diversity is strength, show that there’s more than one way to volunteer and encourage people to be the change that we want to see.

Volunteers are always active at the heart of every UK community. So taking the time during Volunteers’ Week to celebrate and recognise their efforts and all they contribute to our local communities, the voluntary sector and society as a whole have never been more important.

Every year hundreds of events, both online and in–person, take place to celebrate Volunteers’ Week and the huge range of ways in which volunteers give their time. This year will be no different.
