Kirklees Council will publicise its volunteer service’s 30 most outstanding achievements to mark Volunteers’ Week.
The Gateway Volunteer Service encourages people to volunteer in the health and social care sector.
Kirklees Councillor Jean Calvert said: “For many, volunteering is a way to reduce social isolation, improve health and well-being, learn new skills, get experience, and a move towards or into employment. It’s a ‘win, win’ all round.”
Volunteers’ Week runs from June 1 to 7.
