Volunteers Week is a celebration of the millions of people across the UK who volunteer. Volunteering can make a huge difference to you, to others and to the community.
Whether you can give a day or just a few hours, your contribution is important. Volunteering helps you build your self-esteem, meet new people and gain valuable skills and experience.
