Volunteers’ Week celebrates 40th anniversary

Tuesday 26 March 2024

The Volunteers’ Week campaign returns for its 40th year and to mark the occasion the UK campaign group, including Volunteer Scotland, have collectively decided to focus on the spirit of appreciation and recognition.

The rebranded campaign will kick off on the first Monday in June each year, making this year’s date 3-9 June.

The mission for the week remains unchanged: to highlight the diverse volunteer community, showcase volunteering opportunities, and inspire positive change. 

“We all know that volunteers play a vital role in every UK community, serving as the driving force behind various activities.” says Alan Stevenson, CEO Volunteer Scotland. “Therefore, it is essential that we dedicate Volunteers' Week to honouring and recognising their hard work and the significant contributions they make to our communities each year.”

There are several suggested ways you can get involved in this years’ campaign with new resources with the new brand available to use before and during Volunteers’ Week! Go to the website.
