We are here to support, promote and develop voluntary and community action in Middlesbrough

The torch is coming...


Celebrating Volunteers' Week in South Tees

If volunteers make a difference to your charity, community or organisation then make sure you’ve got Volunteers’ Week 1-7 June in your diary! Its an annual campaign from NCVO  that provides an opportunity to thank your existing volunteers and encourage new ones to join you.

How we're celebrating...

We are 'shining the light on volunteering' , by passing on a crocheted torch through different volunteer involving organisations across the South Tees. This will be an opportunity for the organisations to thank their volunteers for the amazing  contributions they make to their local community. We will trace the journey of the torch on an online map and the public are welcome to visit the organisations to find out more. 

We will be active on social media through the week promoting different opportunities and sharing volunteer experiences. Please do follow us and join in; sharing your own experiences of volunteering.

What are your plans?

If you have plans to mark Volunteer Week 2019 in your community or organisation (through open days, volunteer celebrations or taster sessions) get in touch. We can add your event to our map and help promote it through our Facebook page and Events section on our website.
