Celebrate and Inspire this Volunteers’ Week

This year’s Volunteers’ Week event is a chance to “Celebrate and Inspire” volunteers within your community.

The annual event, which takes place between 1 and 7 June across the UK, started in 1984 with the campaign across Scotland coordinated by Volunteer Scotland.

The theme for 2023 is “Celebrate and Inspire”, offering a chance for community organisations, including Community Councils, to recognise those who have volunteered their time as well as motivating new volunteers to think about how they can contribute to their local area.

The Volunteers’ Week website has more information about the campaign, ideas to help you celebrate and inspire volunteers and free resources to help you promote your own activities.
