Vision for Volunteering launch events

We are delighted with the official launch of Vision for Volunteering will be at Volunteer Expo Live, NEC Birmingham May 6-7.

Tickets are free and the exhibition brings together charities, community groups and campaigns under one roof to celebrate the impact of volunteerism. There is a complete program great speakers, as well as interactive learning workshops and an on-site activity where visitors can help pack food parcels to distribute to Ukrainian refugees. If you work in the voluntary sector, this is an event not to be missed. We look forward to seeing you there.

We are also hosting an online event on May 10 with Vision partners. Although it is currently full, you can still email us to join the waitlist.
