Volunteers’ Week 2017 has arrived!
This UK-wide celebration of volunteering takes place every year from 1st-7th June.
For volunteer managers, it’s a perfect time to recognise the invaluable contribution that your volunteers make to your organisation. (We are treating our volunteers to a tapas lunch and they will also get personalised thank you cards.)
For people who want to volunteer, many organisations are hosting open days and attending volunteering fairs to recruit volunteers. And with that in mind, we are co-hosting a MEGA volunteering fair 12-3pm on Tuesday 6th June in King’s Cross with our good friends Volunteer Centre Islington.
Unable to make it on that day? Not to worry! You can search for volunteering 24/7 by using our online matching tool Volunteer Connect. It’s quick and easy to use and gives you direct access to groups which are looking for volunteers right now.
Good to know: Volunteering comes in all shapes and sizes, and right now, there’s 237 roles to choose from!
Not sure why volunteering is a good idea?
There are a number of benefits to volunteering. Did you know, it’s a great way to… get fit, make friends, fill a gap on your cv, have something to talk about in interviews, feel better, increase your confidence, use skills or learn new skills, to feel more part of your local community, to give back … and, we could go on… but suffice to say there’s many, MANY fab reasons to get involved.
Keep your eyes peeled on our social media over the next week. We’ll be highlighting volunteering roles and good reasons to volunteer. You’ll find us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Google+ and LinkedIn. And the links are found to the right of every page on this site.
Any questions? Get in touch with us by email or phone 020 7424 9990. We are open for phone calls Monday – Thursday, 10am-5pm.
And if you already volunteer in Camden. You make Camden a better place to live, work, visit and study. So THANK YOU!!!! 🙂
