Suffolk Action Week

Suffolk Action Week is a volunteer recruitment campaign held in early October.

Suffolk Libraries is delighted to be supporting Suffolk Action Week. The campaign will hopefully highlight the valuable contribution volunteers make in the county as well as the many opportunities available and the benefits of volunteering

Diane Moore, Suffolk Libraries Volunteer Engagement Manager

Last year we held over 20 volunteer information events across the county, with over 50 charities promoting volunteer opportunities.  

Partners included Suffolk Libraries, East of England Coop and Suffolk Community Foundation, as well as many other charities.

Why Suffolk Action Week?

22% of the population take part in volunteering at least once a month and we would like to provide opportunities for more people to get involved in volunteering.

Organisers of Suffolk Action Week have aspirations of making this county a shining example of a community committed to giving their time to causes they believe in.

In Suffolk we have such a diverse range of organisations in the voluntary sector, that it provides scope for people to take a role which is a perfect fit with their lifestyle, their hobbies, experiences or their passions.
