Next week is Volunteers Week. It takes place 1-7 June every year. It's a chance to recognise the fantastic contribution volunteers make to our communities and say thank you.
Volunteers’ Week reminds us all to take the time to say thank you to the millions of volunteers who give their time to improve the lives of their friends and neighbours. From trustees to fundraisers and mentors to befrienders, thank you all for making our communities a happier place to be.
It goes without saying that volunteers have played a key role in the pandemic response. During an exceptionally difficult year, people from all walks of life around the UK have taken the time to volunteer and make a huge difference to their communities – just as they do every year. This is a time for us to come together and thank all volunteers for their invaluable contribution.
