In 2016 volunteers gave us a massive 20,000 hours of their time, from running events and teaching people how to edit to organising the UK branch of the world’s largest photography competition. Volunteers play a very important role in the charity’s work and shape our strategy. Putting in that much time shows that there our community of volunteers is thriving and enthusiastic.
The results of the volunteer survey were published recently, and if you haven’t seen them yet they show that Wikimedia UK is moving in the right direction and we are doing our best to support our volunteers. The feedback included some useful suggestions from the community, and we will be doing our best to continue improving.
So thank you from everyone at Wikimedia UK for your help!
We are holding a train the trainers workshop in Edinburgh in July. You can find out more and sign up on the event page.
