This year's National Volunteering Week took place between 16th and 22nd May 2016. This year our theme was 'thinking differently about volunteering'.

We want to support organisations to attract the right volunteers for them and think about new and unique ways they can involve volunteers. We have a host of resources available to help organisations do just that!

If you're looking to volunteer there are over 3,000 volunteering opportunities currently available on I-VOL, the national database of volunteering, so what are you waiting for? - click, connect and volunteer! Don't forget to check out the Volunteer Marketplace over on LinkedIn for skilled volunteering roles.
