Volunteers’ Week 2022

1st June 2022

Celebrations all round, at last!

This year, National Volunteers Week (1-7 June) coincides with an extended celebration of the 70th year of Queen Elizabeth II reign, and with it comes a four-day bank holiday weekend which communities everywhere are bound to embrace and celebrate! These events have fallen in the month of June, which is also dedicated to celebrating our Communities and our amazing volunteers.

National Volunteers Week (NVW) is all about gratitude, and so it should be! If ever there was “a time to say thanks”, the theme of this years’ NVW, to volunteers and the groups that come together in our communities, it is now. The contribution of volunteers has ensured our society remained functioning over the past two years of unprecedented challenge.

Our Volunteers are there to support our most needed services and organisations across London, and with the rising demand for foodbanks and opportunities to support our Ukrainian friends, our volunteers are as ever the biggest inspirations to guide and lead us by example, and support those in need in the best ways possible. With this years NVW coinciding with the platinum Jubilee celebrations, and the #MonthofCommunity campaign, there are celebrations all round, and we want to show our gratitude and admiration to our volunteers as much as we can!

Groundwork London’s volunteering services in the London Boroughs of Kingston, Barnet and Waltham Forest will be celebrating National Volunteers’ Week to show our appreciation to volunteers who have dedicated their time and effort to supporting their communities. We are working with others to ensure a “a time to say thanks” for our volunteers is heard across London. There will be events in each Borough to not only mark our appreciation but will be central in strengthening the bonds that tie our individual volunteers, volunteer involving organisations and the statutory sector locally. Keep your eyes peeled; it will be celebratory, fun and finally, in person!

You can find out more about how you can get involved in this years Volunteers’ Week on the official page here.
