Give It A Go! Volunteering Extravaganza

The Forum Norwich
Friday 7th June – 10:30am – 4:00pm

Voluntary Norfolk Communities Team have organised an exciting volunteer recruitment and celebration event to mark the 40th anniversary of Volunteers’ Week and the Big Help Out!

Our Give it a Go! Volunteering Extravaganza is on Friday 7th June 10:30am-4pm at the Forum, Norwich – this is not just a volunteers fair but an Extravaganza with activities to help potential volunteers understand organisations’ mission and how they can “give it a go”.

VCSE organisations from across Norfolk will be sharing what they do and getting visitors involved through interactive stalls or activity spaces. Potential volunteers can try out everything from spending time with animals, learning about Norfolk’s history, to playing with model railways! 🎉

Momentum will additionally be launching the FLOURISH Youth Awards at 1pm in The Gallery Space. The awards have been co-designed with young people and will celebrate their volunteering and participation achievements!
 
There will also be a programme of live interviews with volunteers sharing their experiences in our Voice of Volunteers space.
 
We encourage you to spread the word and invite colleagues, volunteers, and young people to come along and give it a go!
 
Here are just some of the youth organisations who’ll be attending:

  • Girlguiding UK
  • National Youth Advocacy Service 
  • New-U
  • Lola Stafford Consulting
  • RSPCA
  • Library Service
  • St John Ambulance
  • Norwich Samaritans

 We look forward to seeing you there! Kindest regards,
