Benefits of volunteering

Volunteer Week 2023 - Mark Rhys, ICAEW Deputy-President, shares a thank you message, plus volunteering stories explain the benefits of volunteering.

Thank you – we couldn’t do it without you!

We are very grateful for all our global volunteers and their support. Serving on our councils, boards and committees, and supporting our outreach and recruitment work, our volunteers’ expertise helps realise our strategy, benefitting our members and students, the wider profession and the global economy. Our volunteers continue to play a fundamental role in our success, and we are very grateful to them for their involvement and goodwill.

Also to those who volunteer for charities and other not-for-profit organisations. Your expertise enables charities to continue flourishing and benefitting causes that make such a difference to so many lives. The voluntary sector and society as a whole has never been more important.

Volunteers’ Week is led in partnership by NCVO, Volunteer Scotland, Volunteer Now (Northern Ireland) and Wales Council for Voluntary Action and is supported by ICAEW and organisations across the UK.
