is an annual celebration of the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK. This year the week of activity is taking place 1-7 June, where employers are encouraged to tell volunteers in the organisation ‘you make a difference’.
The National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has launched a resource pack full of useful information and guidance on how organisations can get involved. This could include holding an event, to running volunteer recruitment or showcasing what your organisation is doing.
If you are looking for guidance on how to better support volunteers in your organisation, NHS Employers has published two pieces of guidance for employers who are looking to recruit and retain volunteers and also to support their staff who volunteer.
Follow the official twitter account @NCVOvolunteers to join the conversation on social media and tweet your thanks to volunteers using #volunteersweek.
