What is Volunteers’ Week?

Volunteers Week starts on the first Monday in June every year. It's a chance to recognise the fantastic contribution volunteers make to our communities and say thank you.

Volunteers’ Week is supported and celebrated by small grassroots organisations as well as larger, household-name charities.

Together they run hundreds of activities across the UK, which showcase and celebrate volunteers and their contribution to our communities.

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 inperson, take place to celebrate Volunteers’ Week and the huge range of ways in which volunteers give their time. This year will be no different.

A wide variety of activities will be happening across the country from volunteer recruitment events and open days to celebration and recognition events.

We look forward to you joining us for Volunteers’ Week 2024, from Monday 3 to Sunday 9 June, to recognise the huge role volunteers play in our communities. More information and new branding resources, including a new logo, will be made available soon.
