Volunteers’ Week 2021 is almost here

Volunteers' Week logo and text reading A time to say thanks. 1-7 June

Volunteers’ Week takes place between 1-7 June every year and is a time to recognise and thank volunteers. During an exceptionally difficult year, people from all walks of life around the UK have taken the time to volunteer and made a huge difference to people and their communities – just as they do every year.

That’s why the theme for this year’s Volunteers’ Week is ‘A time to say thanks’.

We’d like to encourage you to take the time to recognise volunteers that helped during the last 12 months and to thank those who usually volunteer but have not been able to because of the pandemic.

This 37th annual Volunteers’ Week is taking place during #MonthOfCommunity. Running throughout June, #MonthOfCommunity brings together some great organisations with some incredible causes from across the UK to encourage us all to think about and join in with the wide variety of activity happening in our local communities.

We’re really excited about Volunteers’ Week 2021; here’s how you can join in:

  • Check the Volunteers’ Week website for information on how you can get involved
  • Organise online events to connect with your communities
  • Download the resources you need
  • Follow @NCVOvolunteers on twitter and share your inspiring stories, pictures and videos using #VolunteersWeek and #MonthOfCommunity

It’s time to get planning – please share your tweets, stories and messages with us using #VolunteersWeek – we’d love to see how you get on.

Kind regards,

Muireann Montague
