National Volunteering Week

National Volunteering Week is a weeklong celebration of volunteering that takes place every year during the third week of May.

For National Volunteering Week 2021, we asked 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 pandemic 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.

Remember, volunteering isn’t just for National Volunteering Week! You can get involved all year round. Could you volunteer from home? Could you run a virtual recognition event for volunteers? Maybe you could plan some social media posts sharing volunteer stories? There are lots of resources and ideas to get you started here.
