Employers across the NHS and beyond are being encouraged to join the events and celebrations for Volunteers’ Week 2016.
From holding your own events, to running activities and presenting awards, the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) has issued useful information and guidance which supports employers to get involved, and to say thank you to the volunteers in their organisations.
This year’s week of events has been extended and will run from Wednesday 1 June through to Sunday 12 June. This is to allow as many people as possible to join in the celebrations of the contributions of the 22 million volunteers across the UK.
Looking ahead: better supporting volunteers
We've recently published two pieces of guidance for employers who are looking to recruit and retain volunteers and also to support their staff who volunteer.
