Volunteer Expo Online

The UK's new, national volunteering event.

Volunteer Expo Online is the new, national event to celebrate the power of volunteering.

It is a chance for you to find volunteering opportunities to suit them, learn more about the issues you care about, and network with peers to turn your passion for change into action! During the Covid-19 pandemic, volunteering has been more important than ever in supporting those in need.

The event takes place online on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th May 2021 and tickets are completely free! Check out what's in store.

The exhibitors

The volunteer sector is so diverse, full of amazing organisations doing life-changing work. We wanted to capture that variety in our virtual exhibition, with over 60 exhibitors waiting to meet you. Chat with the local, national and international charities you know and love, and ones you’re yet to discover to find your next volunteering adventure.

The workshops

It wouldn’t be a volunteering show without giving you practical ways to get involved! Our Workshop Hub does exactly that. Run by our exhibiting charities, our free workshops give you chance to delve into the topics you care about, or explore something new.

We’re covering everything from mental health to plastic pollution. From disability-inclusive volunteering to digital fundraising. From wildlife conservation to sanitation. There’s something for everyone.

The virtual platform

By taking Volunteer Expo virtual, we want to make sure that visitors still get to experience the things they love about an in-person, live show.

When you first step into our virtual lobby, there is so much for you to explore. This event is not your standard programme of Zoom calls!
