We love you Vols! Celebration

Posted on 2nd June 2021

As an organisation whose heart is firmly shored up by the endeavours and backing of volunteers – we salute all who have shared their time, energy and skills with us over the last, near two decades.

Even more significantly, over 2020/21 when Covid changed our lives beyond our wildest dreams.

In 2018/19, 19.4 million (36%) people volunteered through a group at least once a year and over 11.9 million (22%) of people did so at least once a month.

The most common reason overall for volunteering is wanting to improve things or help people (42%). 

Our volunteers come to us with differing skills, and from diverse backgrounds and communities – but are committed to making a difference, however big or small.

Last week’s activities reflected on volunteers motivations: –

Now we are moving forward, as the country begins to open up – and share how you can join us as we go hurtling towards our 20th anniversary in 2022!

As Volunteer Week 2021 celebrations come to a close we want you to know we are always looking for Volunteers support.

Our vision continues to be to provide vulnerable people with a voice; in relation to their life needs. Volunteers are crucial to this.
