National Volunteer’s Week is an annual UK wide celebration of volunteers taking place each year between 1 – 7 June. This year marks 37 years of recognising volunteers during this special week in June.
The overarching theme agreed by UK partners for Volunteers’ Week 2021 will be ‘Time to Say Thanks’.
Tuesday 1 June – Volunteers’ Week launch
Wednesday 2 June – Youth volunteering (in partnership with the #iwill campaign #PowerofYouth day)
Thursday 3 June – Employer supported and skilled volunteers.
Friday 4 June – To be confirmed.
Sunday 6 June – The Big Lunch
Monday 7 June – Volunteers’ Week in review
In addition, this year, there will be a national campaign that recognises June as a #MonthofCommunity – acknowledging the many community focused campaigns that are celebrated that month.
WHAT IS THE #MONTHOFCOMMUNITY?
In the month of June, after kicking off with Volunteers’ Week, which ends with The Big Lunch (5 – 6 June), there are several other community focused campaigns, such as Small Charity Week (14 – 19 June), Refugee Week (14 – 20 June) and National Picnic Week (19 – 27 June), amongst others. The Eden Project, in collaboration with UK partners are encouraging individuals, communities and organisations across the UK to connect with one another, however they feel most comfortable (and in line with government guidance) to recognise and celebrate the #MonthofCommunity.
