Volunteer Week: The Big Celebration
The big celebration of volunteering
Over 21 million people volunteer in the UK at least once a year and this contributes an estimated £23.9bn to the UK economy. Behind these big numbers is a big contribution.
These 21 million people are a shining example of how we can all make a big difference to individuals and communities every day from improving the environment we live in, spending time with those who may otherwise be lonely and contributing to a range of other essential services and support. Such a big contribution is worth a big celebration!
This year Volunteers’ Week celebrations will be extended from 1 to 12 June.
