Volunteers’ Week is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering in their communities and a time to look at some books about the subject. It takes place every year from 1st to 7th June.

The week is a chance to say thank you to volunteers for the fantastic work they do, and to raise awareness of the many benefits of volunteering. Volunteers’ Week is also a time to inspire more people to get involved in volunteering, and to show them the many different ways they can make a difference.

There are many different ways to get involved in Volunteers’ Week. You can volunteer for a local charity or community group, or you can simply spread the word about the benefits of volunteering. You can also use social media to share your stories about volunteering, and to encourage others to get involved.
