Using social media

Social media is a great – and free – way to publicly celebrate and thank your volunteers.

This year, Volunteers’ Week is taking to Twitter once more. Be sure to share the dates for Volunteers’ Week and links with your volunteers so they can be part of the celebrations across the UK:

Get involved

  • Follow and share your own stories of volunteering using @NCVOvolunteers, the official Twitter account for Volunteers’ Week.
  • Use #VolunteersWeek to say ‘thank you’ to your volunteers and join thousands of other organisations in a nationwide show of thanks.
  • Encourage your volunteers to tell their stories with #VolunteersWeek.
