Future of Volunteering 2021 Conference – 1st & 2nd June

The National Volunteering Unit at NHS Health Education England is delighted to share the registration and further information for the free online Future of Volunteering Conference which is taking place in support of National Volunteer’s Week on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd June.

We have an exciting agenda and sessions planned to showcase and highlight the significance of volunteering within health and social care, to have open dialogue about key debates, shine a spotlight on the barriers to volunteering and social action faced by excluded groups and to create a blueprint and toolkit for the practical steps we can take towards positive change.

  • On Tuesday 1st June we will focus on inclusivity and diversity within volunteering, why it is important, what it looks like and how we achieve it.
  • On Wednesday 2nd June we will explore cross sector working, focus on employer supported volunteering, the benefits, how we support employers to develop programmes and what we can learn from other sectors. We will also explore the ‘Big Questions’ for the future of volunteering.

The conference is for anyone with an interest in volunteering, particularly volunteers, volunteer leaders and representatives from organisations who recruit and manage volunteers directly or indirectly as well as senior leaders from the NHS, health and social care and third sector.

Confirmed keynote speakers include:

  • Dr Navina Evans, Chief Executive Health Education England
