Across the country, National Volunteering Week will see a range of events, stories and videos to showcase all that is great about volunteering. Each year is a different theme – the theme for NVW 2022 (16th – 22nd May) is Celebrate Volunteers!

It’s been a long few years and National Volunteering Week is the perfect time to celebrate the achievements of volunteers throughout the pandemic and beyond. We know that volunteering is a unique form of connection and now that the country has reopened, NVW 2022 is a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with our fellow volunteers and organisations.

Each day will have a different sub theme:

  • Monday – The Environment
  • Tuesday – Health and Wellbeing
  • Wednesday – Community
  • Thursday – COVID-19
  • Friday – Sport, Arts and Culture
  • Saturday and Sunday – time to celebrate!

Remember, volunteering isn’t just for National Volunteering Week! You can get involved all year round. Could you volunteer from home? Could you run a virtual recognition event for volunteers? Maybe you could plan some social media posts sharing volunteer stories?

Get involved!

Whether you're a volunteer or an organisation, there are lots of ways you can get involved and celebrate during National Volunteering Week.
