Volunteers Week 2021
Volunteers Week is an annual celebration of the contribution that millions of volunteers make across the UK. It runs from 1st to 7th June. This Volunteers’ Week we are encouraging everyone to take the time to say thank you to all 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.
Despite the restrictions coronavirus has placed on our daily lives, volunteers and charities have been active through lockdowns and new waves of restrictions to support people, their communities and local environments. We want to recognise all of those who have continued delivering vital work as volunteers over the past 12 months but also all those who usually volunteer but have not been able to because of the pandemic.
Volunteers are always active in the heart of every UK community. They are behind many of the services we all rely on. Some are now volunteering online from home, others in person with a local charity or organisation. Their crucial contribution has not stopped, despite the uncertain times we find ourselves in, and will continue as an important part of the nation’s recovery.
The contribution of volunteers is often unseen and unrecognised by many, visible only through the incredible impact of their volunteering. However, the coronavirus pandemic has rightly raised the profile of volunteering and more people than ever are aware of the immense contribution being made every single day by Britain’s volunteers.
That is why, on this 37th annual #VolunteersWeek and during the #MonthofCommunity, it’s time to say: thank you volunteers!
Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service (LCVS) would like to involve you in our digital celebration of volunteers. It would be great if we could share our message more broadly.
We would also like to encourage anyone who might be thinking about volunteering to get in touch with us and hope to use Volunteers Week as a way of promoting this too.
