Volunteer Networks

Volunteers’ Week is a long-standing, popular event in the voluntary sector, established in 1984. It is supported and celebrated by small grassroots organisations as well as larger, household-name charities, who together run hundreds of events across the UK. These events showcase and celebrate volunteers and the contribution volunteering makes in our communities.

Volunteers’ Week is a chance to be part of the UKs biggest celebration of volunteering, recognising the contribution of 23 million people who volunteer in their communities across the UK.

NCVO is the national lead for Volunteers’ Week in England which sees people coming together to celebrate in a range of imaginative and creative ways. For more information see: https://www.ncvo.org.uk/training-and-events/volunteers-week

The Hull Volunteering Strategy aims to identify the key issues, challenges and opportunities for volunteering and to outline the key objectives which will address the issues and to set out a plan to achieve the objectives. With ever-increasing demands for resources, and shrinking budgets, the challenge in the implementation of this strategy will be to ensure, as far as possible, that new appropriate, good quality volunteering opportunities are developed and that volunteers are not used inappropriately to perform roles which should be carried out by paid staff. Another challenge for organisations will be to dedicate sufficient resources to the management and support of volunteers.

This strategy has been brought together with the involvement of volunteer involving organisations and individual volunteers in the voluntary, community, public and private sectors in Hull. Produced by the Hull Citywide Volunteering Strategy Refresh Working Group now to be known as the Hull Strategic Volunteering Partnership, this replaces the citywide volunteering strategy ‘Volunteering Hull’ which was launched in 2007.

Volunteer Centre Hull has led on the consultation for and development of the Hull Volunteering Strategy 2015-2018.

The strategy focuses on 6 areas of volunteering activity:

  • Promotion Recruitment and Selection of Volunteers
  • Volunteering and Young People
  • Training for Volunteering
  • Employee Supported Volunteering
  • Sports Play and Recreation Volunteering
  • Measuring the Cost and Impact of Volunteering
  • Volunteer Centre Hull is also leading on the Implementation of the Strategy through the Hull Strategic Volunteering Partnership.
