Volunteer Conference

Our Volunteer Conference is a great opportunity to meet other volunteers, learn from each other and share stories.

As volunteers, you make a real difference to the lives of people affected by cancer. The volunteer conference is one of the ways we support you in your roles and thank you for everything you do for Macmillan.

The two day event is packed full of learning and development opportunities and the chance for volunteers to meet old friends and new. Attendees get to hear from Macmillan staff and have the chance to get involved with our work.

When is the conference taking place?

This year's conference will be held on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 May 2017 at the Hinckley Island Hotel, Leicestershire
