Volunteers' Week is an annual celebration of volunteers that takes place every year from 1 – 7 June.

Up and down the country there will be volunteer recruitment fayres and exhibitions taking place, giving organisations the opportunity to recruit and recognise the commitment, talent and positive impact of volunteers.

Help us highlight your volunteer opportunities!

In celebration of Volunteers' Week, help us raise awareness of the range and scope of volunteering available throughout Bridgend County Borough by emailing your organisation's volunteer opportunities you would like to highlight by 7 May 2019

If you would like to display an A4 poster of your activities in our front window of our Bridgend Volunteer Centre, please email us a copy of your poster.

Please email your opportunities to E: [email protected]

Help us highlight your fantastic volunteers! 

We would also like to highlight the fantastic volunteers that are involved in so many organisations in Bridgend County Borough.

If you have a volunteer or a group of volunteers you would like to raise awareness of, we will make sure we highlight the volunteers over the week via social media and in our volunteer bulletin that will go out during Volunteers' Week.

As an example, this could be volunteers that have been with your organisation for a long time, are regular volunteers, have gained confidence, improved their wellbeing or made a real difference to your organisation.   

This information will need to be with us by 7 May 2019,
