Volunteers’ Week 2020

19 May , 2020 News

Volunteers’ Week takes place 1 – 7 June every year. It’s a chance to celebrate and say thank you for the contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK.

Although it’s more important than ever for us to recognise and support volunteers, due to the Covid-19 outbreak it would be inappropriate to go ahead with any celebrations.

We will continue to support all of our volunteers to take on coronavirus-related volunteering roles to help our members cope with the many consequences of coronavirus.

Instead of celebrating in our usual way we wish to thank all of our volunteers and we will reserve our celebrations for our first meeting back.


Although some nations have had to cut back or stop activity, we’re still here to recognise and support the important contribution of volunteers.
