Volunteer Expo is the UK’s new, national volunteering show, bringing together individuals and organisations from across society to inspire and celebrate those who love to give something back.
Whether you’ve never volunteered before and are looking for a cause to support, or you’re an existing volunteer with a passion for change, there is something for everyone.
Tickets to the event are completely free!
Meet over 100 leading local, national and global charities and organisations in our large exhibition and find volunteer opportunities with the charities or causes you care about.
Enjoy inspiring speaker sessions with celebrity campaigners, charity leaders and real life volunteering heroes in our 1,000 seat arena.
You will have the opportunity to attend a range of over 40 interactive workshops, seminars and Q&A sessions. Covering a range of topics from mental health and to environment, to digital fundraising and family volunteering, there is something for you to explore and learn.
Volunteer Expo is open to all ages and families, with the opening day of the event being dedicated to Young Changemakers with a programme for key stage 3 and 4 students.
Volunteer Expo is hosted by Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland, who have supported good causes and community volunteering for over 100 years.
