Are you tired of doing the same old thing for Volunteers’ Week? How many ways can there be to recognise and saying thank you to volunteers, you may ask. The answer is – very many different ways.

A new publication on the WCVA website will give you fresh ideas. based on the stories of what other organisations have previously done for Volunteers' Week.

In the format of a series of recipe cards 'Recipes for a successful Volunteers' Week' describes what was done, for what purpose, with what result and how costs were kept down.  There are even suggestions as to 'what we would do differently next time', since we all can learn from experience.

Recipes for a successful Volunteers' Week can be downloaded here, free of charge.

This year's theme for Volunteers' Week is Volunteering for all.  The ideas in this collection might help you to reach different target audiences in different ways.

We will be pleased to hear from you if you try out any of these ideas yourself and to know how they went. If you have similar stories to share, we will be glad to publicise them too, in time to inspire others for for Volunteers' Week 2019!

Our Volunteers' Week page includes a number of useful resources to support the Week, including, the Logo, Volunteers' Week certificates, and a poster template.
