Virtual Volunteering Fair 

Thursday 22 to Friday 23 October 2020 - online.

The Volunteering Fair will feature stands, social media takeovers and webinars and is for registered charities to promote your volunteering opportunities to our students and recent graduates. As this year's fair is all being held online, there is no requirement for you to be 'present' on the days of the fair meaning very little time commitment and zero travel commitments! You don't have to 'attend' to run your stand, you could simply provide the information for students to browse, or you may want to be available to answer questions in a live chat, run an Instagram takeover or deliver a webinar on your charity and the opportunities to volunteer. 

There are many different ways you can get involved. Book your virtual stand at

Although a slightly different format this year, the annual Volunteering Fair is always an absolute highlight in our calendar and fantastic opportunity for charities to raise awareness amongst attendees as well as recruit volunteers. To see for yourself how successful the fair has been in previous years, search #DerbyVolFair on Twitter.  

Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, and follow on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date. If you are currently looking to recruit volunteers don't forget you can list your opportunities on our website
