Updates from VAAC

Help us celebrate Volunteers' Week

Volunteers' Week is coming up at the beginning of June and we'd love it if you could help us to celebrate by asking your volunteers to tell us about their experiences of volunteering, or by letting us know what a difference they make to your organisation. We'd like to compile some quotes, videos and images for our social media over the week so please send us anything that you'd like us to include to

Thank you! 

Are you celebrating the Queen's Jubilee?

Do you have an event planned to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in June? Let us know so that we can share all the fun things that are happening across the districts.


Send your posters, flyers or information to Jenny
