Today is International Volunteer Day 2018, with this year's theme being ‘Volunteers build resilient communities'.

The day recognises volunteer efforts worldwide that strengthen local ownership and resilience in the community.

It is estimated that there are over one billion people who volunteer across the globe each year.

At UCW, we have more than 300 volunteers who are at the heart of our work and make a real impact in our community.  They are part of the bigger picture, helping to bring about change, create opportunities and share a sense of belonging, hope and purpose.

Thank you to all of our volunteers who dedicate their time to walk alongside the people we serve.
