Volunteer Expo is the new, national event harnessing the power of volunteering.
Whether you want to make your first steps in volunteering, or you’re already active, there is something for you at Volunteer Expo.
With over 100 exhibitors including charities and community-interest organisations, our Main Exhibition gives you plenty to see, learn and do, including the opportunity to get involved with on-site hands on projects.
Our 1000 seat auditorium will feature expert speakers and inspiring sessions, while our Learning Zones give you chance to explore charity and societal issues in more depth during intimate and interactive workshops.
And you’re never too young to start doing good in your community, so our Youth Hub will offer fun activities for younger visitors.
Tickets are free of charge and are available now.
Volunteer Expo is hosted by Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland, one of the world’s leading humanitarian service organisations supporting good causes for over 100 years.
