Birmingham’s Vision for Volunteering sets out an aspirational view of what the volunteering landscape in Birmingham could look like by 2027. It draws on the recently developed national Vision for Volunteering, produced by the National Council of Voluntary Organisations (NCVO) and its partners. It was co-produced by citizens, voluntary, community, faith and social enterprise organisations, the public sector, and academic partners in Birmingham, through a series of events held in late 2022. It’s based on three key principles which are: 

  • Celebrating Difference 

  • Collaboration 

  • Awareness and Appreciation 

The Vision for Volunteering virtual workshops are interactive sessions that aim to help you understand more about the vision and what we hope to see in Birmingham by 2027. They are also an opportunity for us to unpack the three key principles together and for you to share the challenges and opportunities that you’re experiencing related to volunteering in these areas. You will have a chance to voice the support and resources that you need to celebrate difference, better collaborate with volunteers and peers in the sector and show appreciation to your volunteers. This insight will shape future vision for volunteering activity in Birmingham.  

We hope that you will come away having built relationships with other volunteer involving organisations in the city and feeling inspired to bring to life the vision for volunteering in your work. The workshops are open to all and free to attend  

Please note, we are running three workshops, each focusing on one of the key principles. You’re welcome to attend all three workshops or those you feel are most relevant to your work. The sessions are designed to be collaborative workshops so will be based on discussion, conversation and engaging activities.
