Kent prepares for Volunteers’ Week

Voluntary organisations and charities throughout Kent are making plans for the 40th anniversary of Volunteers’ Week, from June 3-9. The event is the chance to showcase and celebrate volunteers and their contribution to communities throughout the county, and to say thank you for their amazing work. Local organisations can make use of Kent Volunteers’ handy resource pack to prepare for the week.

Following closely after Volunteers’ Week is the second Big Help Out from June 7-9. This year’s campaign focuses on supporting under-represented communities in volunteering and to help with this, there’s a new app and digital platform where one-off volunteering opportunities can be shared – these can also be listed on this website.
