Volunteers’ Week 2011, sponsored by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, takes place from 1-7 June. Now in its 27th Year, the Week celebrates the millions of volunteers who give their time and acts as a call for others to get involved too.
Our dedicated website – www.volunteersweek.org.uk has a host of information and resources including:
- Volunteers Week events locator
- Inspiring case studies
- Free downloadable resources such as certificates, posters and flyers
- Additional Volunteers Week merchandise
- Hints and tips such as how to involve the media in your events
Our regular Volunteers’ Week e-newsletter provides informative updates. It’s easy to sign up on the website for your own copy.
Hundreds of events and activities are taking place across the UK, from a 2012 Games double decker bus tour to a festival of volunteering and celebration parties for volunteers.
Volunteers’ Week is a great opportunity to publicise the work you and your volunteers are doing, attract new supporters and make useful contacts. It is also lots of fun.
If you don’t have the resource to arrange an event yourself, consider joining an existing event and sharing the workload. Contact your local Volunteer Centre, who may have details, or simply type your postcode into the event locator on our website.
