A time to say thanks! Please join our Virtual Volunteers Week 2021 1st-7th June and tell us how you will celebrate your volunteers #volunteersweek #MonthofCommunity

Every year hundreds of events, both online and in-person, take place to celebrate Volunteers’Week and the huge range of ways in which volunteers give their time. Volunteers’ Week runs every year from 1st-7th June.

This year will be no different. This year’s theme is ‘A time to say thanks’ –

recognising that during an exceptionally difficult year due to the coronavirus pandemic, 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 every day – just as they do every year.

A wide variety of activities will be happening across the country including The Big Lunch. This moveable feast is an opportunity for volunteers to come together online at their doorstep or in a park, guidelines permitting, to celebrate community connections and share volunteering experiences. You can find out more about how to get involved and get resources to plan your own thank-you on the Volunteers’Week website.


We have designed a customisable certificate for you to say thank you to your wonderful volunteers. You just need to add their name, your organisation and sign it, and you are ready to go. You can download it here Vols Week 2021 certs in PDF or PNG format

Running throughout June, the #MonthOfCommunity brings together some great organisations with a range of events including Volunteers’ Week, The Big Lunch and Small Charity Week, and culminates in Thank You Day on 4 July. This collaborative month aims to encourage everyone to think about and join in with the wide variety of positive activities and initiatives happening in local communities across the UK.
