Volunteer Scotland, Stirling Council and Stirlingshire Voluntary Enterprise have joined forces to make Stirling the first European Volunteering Capital in Scotland.
With over one third of local people already volunteering, we want Stirling to be the first area in Scotland where it’s the norm to volunteer and have set an ambitious target to increasing participation to 50%.
We want to involve all our communities in a vibrant year-long Festival of Volunteering in 2020 to capture Stirling’s strong community spirit and enable everyone to benefit from the feel-good factor volunteering brings.
We will continue to grow our annual Festival of Volunteering activities and lead the way into the year of festivals 2020 by joining in a #congainto2020
