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.
The 2018 Volunteer Conference will be held on 18 and 19 May in Blackpool. We’ll be releasing more information about how to apply for a place in March 2018. Be sure to check back then to ensure you don’t miss out on the event of the year.
All our dedicated volunteers, no matter what your role, will be able to apply for a place. Applications will open on this page in March 2018. If oversubscribed, places will first be allocated to volunteers who have never been to the Volunteer Conference before and have been volunteering with us for more than a year.
This year’s conference was a fantastic event. Volunteers heard from Macmillan’s Chief Executive, Lynda Thomas, previewed our new TV adverts, networked with fellow volunteers, attended learning and development sessions and found out about different projects happening across Macmillan. You can view photos from the two days on Facebook and see what other volunteers thought about it on Twitter, by searching for the hashtag #MacVolConf.
All conference attendees also have the chance to attend the Macmillan Volunteer Awards ceremony. This is where we celebrate our UK winners and present them with their award. Find out how you can nominate a fellow volunteer and give them the recognition they deserve at macmillan.org.uk/volunteerawards.
We've got lots of opportunities to make your time matter. Find out about available opportunities and apply today.
