Volunteers’ Week 2024

3-9 June 2024

Published: 1st June 2024

It is that time of year when we want to say a big thank-you to all our volunteers. Volunteers and volunteering are essential for making the HA work the way it does. From our governance to our output, we rely on the time, expertise and goodwill of individuals from across our membership and the history and heritage community. So to everyone who arranges a speaker, collects the money on the door, writes an article, sits on a committee, delivers a lecture or does any of the many jobs and roles that our volunteers do – we thank you, and appreciate everything that you do.

And the great thing is that it’s not just we who benefit from the incredible work of our volunteers – research and feedback show that volunteering is good for the wellbeing of the volunteer too. Donating your time and enthusiasm to support an organisation and endeavour that you believe in, or feel you are able to contribute to, provides opportunities for mental growth, skills development and making friendships.

If you would like to get involved with the HA as a volunteer please get in touch at enquiries@history.org.uk.
