Volunteers Week 1-7 June: You make the difference

24 April 2017

Have you got 1-7 June in your diary? The annual Volunteers Week is a great opportunity for you to be part of the national campaign to thank your volunteers and celebrate the massive difference they make.

There's lots of opportunities for you to get involved in a big way or a small way - award ceremonies, volunteer recruitment campaigns, tea Volunteers Week logoparties, or just a simple 'thank you' card - the NCVO have put together helpful ideas and tips to make Volunteers Week a success for you.

Promoting your activity

You can put your events and activities on the Volunteers Week Map via the Volunteers Week website.  We'd also love to hear your ideas and will promote local Bucks activities on our website, Twitter and Facebook.  Tell us what you're doing by emailing

Have you got a good story to tell?

We're looking for individuals who want to share their volunteering story with us and the wider world!  During Volunteers Week we'll be featuring a new story every day via our website, Twitter and Facebook as well as local media.  Can you help us?  It's a great opportunity to promote not just volunteering, but also to shout about the work of your charity.  Get in touch with

How can we help you?

We've got loads of resources to support and help you with your volunteer selection and recruitment, but if you need more specialised support we're running a 'Finding & Supporting Volunteers' advice surgery in High Wycombe on 8 June.  This is an opportunity for your 1-1, free of charge, 45-minute session with one of our volunteering experts.   For more information and how to book visit our events page.

So to summarise...

Good luck with your planning and we can't wait to hear about all the exciting things happening across Bucks!
