Year of the Volunteer

SEFTON Council, in partnership with Sefton CVS, is dedicating 2018 as the Year of the Volunteer! Following on from the huge success of the 'Year of the Coast,' the tireless work of Sefton's thousands of volunteers, who give an astonishing 116,000 hours of their time each week, will be celebrated in a yearlong campaign to raise awareness of how much volunteers do for the borough.

Volunteers make a real difference in Sefton. They touch people's lives in so many different ways, providing comfort and support, fostering community development, and actively helping to keep Sefton clean, green and beautiful. Volunteering also has a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of those who participate in it.

'The Year of the Volunteer'
will be officially launched, on Tuesday, 6 February 2018, at The Atkinson, Southport, where partners, community groups and residents can learn more about what 2018 has in store for the voluntary, community and faith sector and how to get involved.

Throughout the year we will be celebrating a number of different volunteer themes including health and wellbeing, animals and the environment, culture, the armed forces and youth volunteering.

Cllr Trish Hardy, Sefton Council cabinet member for Communities and Housing, said:- "In recognising the valuable role that volunteers play, it made sense that 2018 becomes the Year of the Volunteer.  This theme will not only celebrate the vital work that volunteers do, but hopefully it will encourage other people to get involved as well. Throughout the year we hope to celebrate the valuable contribution that volunteers make, highlight the volunteering opportunities available in Sefton and increase the number of people who sign up to volunteering activities."

Sefton CVS Chief Executive Angela White OBE said:- "Sefton CVS and the Volunteer Centre Sefton are delighted to be working in partnership with Sefton Council to highlight the work of local volunteers and the organisations across the borough throughout 2018.  The Volunteer Centre Sefton will continue to play an active role I supporting local residents to access volunteer roles, and also support local voluntary, community and faith sector groups to recruit, manage and retain volunteers."

Further information about the launch event and themes for Year of the Volunteer will be released in due course.
