1. VOLUNTEERING FOR ALL: – National Volunteers’ Week. 1-7th June 2018

Volunteers’ Week is a chance to say thank you for the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK.  It takes place 1-7 June every year and is an opportunity to celebrate volunteering in all its diversity.

During the week, hundreds of events and celebrations take place across the country, saying thank you to volunteers and recognising their invaluable and diverse contribution to the UK.

Here you’ll find inspiring volunteering stories, ways to get involved in the week, and free downloadable resources to help make your celebrations a success.

Here on our Greenspace Volunteer Blog we will be celebrating the diversity of our own volunteers throughout the week. Highlighting a different person or group each day.   If you would like to join in, please tag @perthandkinross #volunteers

Volunteering for all

This year, Volunteers’ Week is about volunteering for all – celebrating the huge range of people who give their time in so many ways.
