Volunteers’ Week takes place 1 – 7 June every year. It’s a chance to say thank you for the contribution millions of volunteers make across the UK, particularly at this time when we’re relying even more on the goodwill of volunteers to support our communities.

The Week is open to anyone to take part – this can include carrying out an act of kindness, doing some volunteering or contributing to discussion. Find more information here.

The week is led in partnership by NCVOVolunteer ScotlandVolunteer Now (Northern Ireland) and Wales Council for Voluntary Action and supported by organisations across the UK.

Volunteers and Cinema

Hundreds of community cinemas across the UK are volunteer-run, with people bringing their love of cinema and the audience experience to life in their communities. There are also many other independent venues that simply would not be able to provide the special and personal experiences they do without the support of volunteers. Thanks to all these brilliant people!

Due to coronavirus, cinemas are closed country-wide, but do look out for online screenings and events taking place instead which are helping connect people at this time.
