Volunteers’ Week

Volunteers' Week is a chance to be part of the UK's biggest celebration of volunteering, recognising the contribution of 23 million people who volunteer in their communities across the UK.

NCVO is the national lead for Volunteers' Week in England, and the week is led by our UK partners, WCVA, Volunteer Scotland, and Volunteer Now.

Date 1-7 June 2017
Location Events held across the UK

Volunteers' Week is a long-standing, popular event in the voluntary sector, established in 1984. It is supported and celebrated by small grassroots organisations as well as larger, household-name charities, who together run hundreds of events across the UK. These events showcase and celebrate volunteers and the contribution volunteering makes in our communities.

People celebrate in a range of imaginative and creative ways, and you can see some of the best photos from the week on our Volunteers Week Pinterest board.
