People across Norfolk and Waveney are invited to special volunteering “Wellfest” events this October, to celebrate the difference volunteering makes across health and social care.


Local volunteering teams from both charities and health & social care organisations are looking forward to sharing their stories and successes with members of the public. Volunteering can take many forms and many people are surprised about the range of activities local people undertake to help out.

These events will feature interactive stands and displays with opportunities to speak to current volunteers about what they do in their own words, meet local PAT dogs or even experience a therapeutic hand massage!


Thursday 12 October 11am - 2pm at Norwich Quaker Meeting House, Upper Goat Lane, Norwich NR2 1EW

Tuesday 17 October 11am - 2pm at Duke’s Head Hotel, 5-6 Tuesday Market Place, King's Lynn PE30 1JS

All are welcome!

These events are organised in collaboration with Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Board, Voluntary Norfolk and Community Action Norfolk.

We are also heading to Great Yarmouth to launch the Volunteer to Career initiative. Join us to find out about this new route in to health and care employment!

Tuesday 10th October 11:30am - 1pm at Great Yarmouth Library, Tolhouse St, Great Yarmouth NR30 2SH
