Volunteer Expo Online is the UK’s new, national volunteering show, bringing together individuals and organisations from across society to inspire and celebrate those who love to give something back.
COVID-19 has shown how vital the dedication of key workers, volunteers, charities and not-for-profit organisations is in keeping society together.
Whether you’ve never volunteered before and are looking for a cause to support, or you’re an existing volunteer with a passion for change, your next volunteering adventure can start right here.
The event is completely free and you can enjoy everything this show has to offer from the comfort of your own home as we go virtual in 2021!
Meet over 60 leading local, national and global charities and organisations in our virtual exhibition. Network with other visitors to make connections.
Enjoy inspiring speaker sessions and Q&As with celebrity campaigners, charity leaders and real life volunteering heroes. Engage in a range of interactive online workshops covering a range of topics from mental health and the environment, to digital fundraising and family volunteering.
Volunteer Expo is hosted by Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland, who have supported good causes and community volunteering for over 100 years.
