Volunteers’ Week 2018

Volunteers’ Week is a national celebration of volunteering and a time to say thank you for the fantastic contribution volunteers make. The week runs from Friday 1 June until Thursday 7 June and this year the theme is ‘volunteering for all’.

During Volunteers’ Week, hundreds of events and celebrations will take place across the country, saying thank you to volunteers and recognising their invaluable and diverse contribution.

Volunteer Edinburgh is a partner again this year and we will be celebrating the amazing contribution that volunteers make at our annual Inspiring Volunteer Awards ceremony at the City Chambers.

“With thousands of great volunteering positions available in local communities across the country, from micro-volunteering to community based activities to online opportunities, Volunteers’ Week helps organisations celebrate their volunteers’ work and encourages volunteers to share their own stories. The week can also help highlight how people can access volunteering opportunities and overcome any barriers they might be facing, so there’s a real benefit in getting involved for charities large and small.”
