We here at CDFM are a team full of volunteers.....
VOLUNTEERS' WEEK 2021
Volunteers’ Week is a time to say thanks for the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering. Join us this year to recognise the fantastic contribution volunteers make.
Volunteersweek.org shows us the full themes for each day during this week of giving thanks.
TUESDAY 1 JUNE: VOLUNTEERS’ WEEK LAUNCH – A TIME TO SAY THANKS
Join us for the first day of Volunteers’ Week 2021. This year has highlighted the vital role volunteers play across the UK and we want to make sure everyone is aware that this is a week to recognise their impact, think about volunteering and plan to support volunteering in the future.
WEDNESDAY 2 JUNE: POWER OF YOUTH DAY
On 2 June, Volunteers’ Week is coordinating with the #iwill movement for Power of Youth Day. Power of Youth Day is an annual celebration of the contributions children and young people make to society through volunteering and social action. This year the focus will be on the incredible efforts that young people have made during the last year – a year impacted by a global pandemic and subsequent lockdowns.
THURSDAY 3 JUNE: EMPLOYER SUPPORTED AND SKILLED VOLUNTEERING DAY
On 3 June, we want to recognise the continued contributions of skilled and employer supported volunteers by showcasing their impact around the UK.
FRIDAY 4 JUNE: HOME NATIONS’ DAY
On this day, our national bodies and partners are celebrating a theme relevant to their local community. Please contact your home nation partner for more information.
ENGLAND – VOLUNTEER VOICES
This day is a chance for volunteers to talk about what they do directly – an opportunity to highlight the benefits of volunteering for both the volunteer and the people they support.
SATURDAY 5 JUNE: ENVIRONMENT AND CONSERVATION DAY
To coincide with World Environment Day, we are focusing on all the environmental volunteering that takes place every day.
SUNDAY 6 JUNE: THE BIG LUNCH
This year’s Volunteers’ Week festivities also include The Big Lunch. What better way to celebrate the impact volunteers have in their communities than The Big Lunch! You can join in online, on your doorstep, in a park, or over the fence (guidelines permitting). This is your chance to celebrate community connections, recognise fellow volunteers and talk to others about your experience volunteering. This weekend in June is the UK’s annual get together for neighbours and communities.
MONDAY 7 JUNE: VOLUNTEERS’ WEEK CLOSE – A TIME TO SAY THANKS
Let’s say a huge thank you to all those incredible volunteers and celebrate volunteering in all its diversity.
