Volunteers' Week is an annual campaign managed by Volunteering England.
Traditionally, it has celebrated the fantastic contribution that millions of volunteers make across the UK and aimed to inspire more people to donate time to their communities.
Up and down the country, individuals and organisations hold events to do this, with Volunteering England promoting all this great work.
But is this the right approach? Should Volunteers' Week be a celebration? Or should it be a campaign to highlight the central role of volunteering to the running of the country? Is it an opportunity to try and increase funding for volunteering?
The fact is, we're just not sure. So it's over to you...
- What should be the objective of Volunteers' Week 2013?
- How should that objective be achieved?
Tip for answering...
- Think of an easily achievable objective, eg support organisations to have celebration events for their volunteers.
- Think of a completely mad objective, eg ensure 75 per cent of the population volunteers at least once a month by the end of 2013.
- Think of an ambitious objective that lies somewhere between the two, eg lobby government to introduce a tax break for all employers who support their staff to volunteer.
The ambitious objective is the one you share, along with ideas for how you might go about achieving it.
