Volunteers’ Week is usually a ‘time to celebrate’ and thank all the volunteers in the UK for the support and services they provide throughout the year. We have seen an amazing volunteer response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and we have therefore decided that this year more than ever Volunteers’ Week should focus on our thanks, gratitude and recognition.

We’re asking everyone to get involved and to show their appreciation to volunteers; this might be your neighbour, who you hardly saw before this crisis, but who’s now getting your shopping. Or it might be someone re-training to provide a vital service such as online befriending and supporting those with major health issues or who are feeling lonely. We are so proud to recognise the efforts of Scotland’s volunteers and want you to join us in thanking them. Join us!
