What our Volunteers' Week partners say
Volunteers have continued to give so much time, energy, commitment and skills to the communities and organisations that they have supported however it is now more important than ever that we encourage more people to give a little bit of time to the wonderful organisations that make such a positive difference to our Northern Ireland community. It is fitting that Volunteers Week 2023 will give everyone the opportunity to Celebrate the ongoing commitment but also to encourage more people to say that all important ‘yes’.
Denise Hayward, chief executive at Volunteer Now, which coordinates Volunteers’ Week in Northern Ireland
Volunteers of all ages across Wales make a world of difference by volunteering in many different ways, places and spaces. Volunteers’ Week is a key moment in the year to celebrate the contributions made through the amazing voluntary effort that takes place every day, in every part of our nation. This year we will also be using this national week to inspire more people to get involved in volunteering by taking a look at the opportunities available, finding out more and seeing if there is something that sparks their interest.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Scottish communities and what better time to celebrate their very many vital contributions than during Volunteers’ Week. In celebrating volunteers and sharing their stories, we highlight the enormous breadth of volunteering opportunities on offer and demonstrate the many benefits – especially for volunteers. It’s important that this Volunteers’ Week we celebrate AND inspire and in doing so help those new to volunteering to take their next steps. So, here’s to Scotland’s (inspirational) volunteers – thank you and have a great Volunteers’ Week.
