What is Volunteers Week
Volunteers’ Week is about celebrating and thanking those who give up their time to make a difference. Whether you are part of a voluntary organisation or a volunteer yourself, here’s how to make your week as great as possible.
How to say thank you
We have shared a couple of posts with hints and tips on how to celebrate and recognise your volunteers, so why not browse back through our posts?
As usual we have designed a certificate for you to say thank you to your wonderful volunteers. It can easily be customised for your group if you wish. You can just drop Eileen an email on email@example.com and she can insert your logo and send it back to you as a PDF or picture file. We have also downloaded the official Volunteers Week certificate of the website which we can share as a Word document if you prefer. Always good to have a choice 😊
There are loads of great resources for organisations here
Help us share your good news stories and celebrations

Celebrating and recognising volunteers is so important and if you do it regularly you may be looking for some new ideas.
Baudeville is an American organisation, who have been an integral part of recognition programs and practices in organizations across the country for over 40 years. Their employee recognition solutions and expertise have helped millions motivate, engage, and retain those who are essential to their businesses, schools, healthcare facilities, and non-profit organizations.
They produced this great guide – 52 ways to appreciate volunteers, so I thought I would share it to help you get those creative juices flowing.
