Share Your Story This Volunteers’ Week

Love volunteering at RDA?  We want to hear about it.  Maybe you’ve met great friends, learned new skills or achieved something you’re really proud of. By sharing your story you may inspire others to volunteer.

Between the 1st and 12th of June we will be celebrating Volunteers’ Week and as well as spending time recognising the valuable contribution volunteers bring to RDA this is a great opportunity to share with everyone what makes being an RDA volunteer special and rewarding.  

We’ve put together some ways you could help us spread the word.

Social Media

Making use of sites such as Facebook and Twitter is a great way to join the conversation about volunteering.

If you use twitter remember to mention us @rdanational so we can share your news.  You may also wish to include @volunteersweek or #volunteersweek in your tweet.

If your group has a Facebook page you could publish an album of photographs of your volunteers in action or include some snaps of any celebration events.

If photos are your thing you could try using Instagram.  You can include us in your posts by mentioning @rdauk .

Volunteer Videos

Filming yourself can be a brilliant way of sharing your volunteering story.

We want to hear about why you think being an RDA volunteer is great.

You might want to talk about things such as why you think RDA is important, how you got started as a volunteer or what you have learnt along the way.

If you think you could help us by filming a video of your own volunteer story check out our guidelines for making a video which we’ve designed to help you get started.

Email Us Your Story

If social media or videos aren’t your thing we would still really love to hear from you.  Feel free to email your stories to and we will share them during volunteers week.
