What our Volunteers' Week partners say

For 40 years Volunteers’ Week has provided a focus to thank and recognise volunteers. It’s wonderful to think of all the time, care and support that’s been given over that time, and the huge difference it’s made to so many lives.

Denise Hayward: Chief Executive, Volunteer Now

Volunteers’ Week is always a special time of year. It’s so important to take a moment to recognise and thank everyone who gives their time to help out in their communities with charities and other good causes.

Ruth Marks: Chief Executive, WCVA

This year Volunteers’ Week is celebrating in style with a revamped brand and new ways to get involved. A fresh look but a consistent message – join us and let’s celebrate volunteers and volunteering, this first week in June.

Alan Stevenson: Chief Executive, Volunteer Scotland

Now more than ever it’s important to recognise those who selflessly give up their time to help others. We can’t wait to celebrate the power volunteering has to bring communities together and be part of recognising its immense impact.

Sarah Vibert: Chief Executive, NCVO
