The Big Help Out – Save the date!

Community Volunteering is an important part of the UK’s story, from Air Raid Wardens during the Second World War to over 12 million of us who stepped forward during the pandemic.

Now thousands of organisations – big and small – are getting together to mark The King’s Coronation by giving everybody the chance to try volunteering for themselves and make a difference in their community.

Developed by the Scout Association and the Royal Voluntary Service, and organised by the Together Coalition, The Big Help Out starts on Monday 8th May.

If you are a volunteer-involving organisation here’s how you can help:

  • Start planning your events for May 8th and beyond. Maybe its some taster sessions to help people experience what you do, or something special for the day. Let us know on the link below
  • Spread the word. Make sure you tell your networks to save the date – Monday 8th May – and check back on 20th March for social media, posters and much more.
  • Share other opportunities to volunteer using the link below.

If you are an individual or other organisation that would like to get involved, make sure you save the date, tell your networks and take a look here on 20th March when you can sign up, and spread the word!
