Celebrating health and care volunteering

People talking about volunteering

Come along and celebrate health and care volunteering in your local area!

We are inviting local residents living across Norfolk and Waveney to special volunteering “Wellfest” events this October. The events will celebrate the difference volunteering activity makes across health and social care.

Local volunteering teams from both the voluntary sector and health and social care organisations are looking forward to sharing their stories and successes with members of the public.

Volunteering can take many forms and the range of activities on offer can surprise lots of people. These events will feature interactive stands and displays with opportunities to speak to current volunteers about what they do in their own words. There is also the chance to meet local PAT dogs or even take up the opportunity of having a therapeutic hand massage.

  • Thursday 12 October at Norwich Quaker Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Norwich, NR2 1EW
