Volunteers are celebrated with National Week

Our BHF volunteers are highly valued members of our team and play a vital role in our fundraising and awareness work.

And what better week to recognise their hard work and commend them for it than this week - National Volunteers' Week (1-7 June).

Volunteers' Week is the UK's annual celebration of the work volunteers do. During the Week events are held across the country to recognise, reward and recruit volunteers.

And, as part of Volunteers' Week, a cross-party report is calling for more people to be allowed flexibility when taking time off work or academic studies to participate in volunteer work.

Do you think that workplaces should be more flexible to accommodate volunteers? Or are you a BHF volunteer who'd like to share your story about what it's like to work as one?

If you've got some spare time and the idea of volunteering appeals, then why not find out more about how you can help.
