2020 National Volunteer Week (NVW) is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contribution of our nation’s volunteers. #NVW2020 #VNQ

We are currently looking at ways to deliver our NVW 2020 awards virtually and accessibly to the great volunteers and volunteer involving organisations. Stay tuned for further updates. In the meantime, get your nominations in. Nominations close 19 April.

This year’s theme is Changing Communities. Changing Lives.
