Volunteer Expo

Tuesday, 10 March, 2020

Looking for practical advice on how to turn your passion into action? Maybe you want to learn how to kickstart a digital fundraising campaign? Or perhaps you’re looking to explore a topic you’ve never experienced before?

Over 40 free workshops have been added to the Volunteer Expo programme to help you delve deeper into the areas you love or learn something completely new.

From the global sanitation crisis to providing emergency first aid, and spotting the signs of modern slavery, to the art of peaceful protest and more, there is plenty on offer.

Volunteer Expo is the UK's new, national volunteering show, coming to The NEC, Birmingham from 1st-3rd May 2020.

The workshops will take on a range of formats, including practical activities, panel discussions, Q&A sessions and idea exchanges with peers and fellow visitors.

Hosted by a range of sector experts from local, national and international charities and community groups of all shapes and sizes, the programme will give visitors a variety of perspectives.

Alongside the workshops, Volunteer Expo will also include inspiring speaker sessions with celebrity campaigners, volunteer heroes and charity sector leaders and an exhibition of over 100 leading local, national and international charities to help prospective volunteers find opportunities and causes to suit them.

Visitor tickets to Volunteer Expo are completely free and can be booked online. Complimentary parking at The NEC is also available.
