Volunteers' Week, Small Charity Week & much more in the Month of Community!

Updated: May 29

We are excited to share that June is ‘The Month of Community’, a campaign which entails many events such as Volunteers' Week (1st-7th) & Small Charity Week (20th-25th) to bring people and organisations together to celebrate everything that makes our communities great! (see news section below)!


June will see a month of community events and celebrations across the UK, as we get together to share friendship, have fun and support a variety of charities and causes.


Last year, over 15 million people took part in the first ever Month of Community, and this year it’s going to be even bigger and better. So don't miss out, join in this June - whether you want to say cheers to volunteers, connect with your neighbours, support a cause you care about, or simply to say thank you, it's all part of the Month of Community!
