National Volunteering Week 17 - 23 May

Posted on 16 May 2021

National Volunteering WeekNational Volunteering Week is returning to it’s rightful home in the third week of May for 2021 (17 – 23) and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever!

This National Volunteering Week, we’re asking people to think small! Whether it’s an action you can take to support your community like picking up litter or doing something for yourself like meditation or enjoying a hot bath, even the smallest acts can have a big impact. The last year has been hard on us all but there are small things we can do for ourselves, and for each other, that make a big difference.

Likewise, if you manage volunteers, we’ll be showcasing small ways you can adapt your volunteer programme to the ‘new normal’.

Could you volunteer from home? Could you run a virtual event for volunteers? Maybe you could plan some social media posts sharing volunteer stories?
