We’re Supporting Volunteers’ Week This June

Posted on: 03 Jun 24

We will be making the most of this year’s week-long opportunity to recognise and celebrate all that volunteers do, during Volunteers’ Week, taking place between 3rd and 9th June.

What Is Volunteers’ Week?

Volunteers’ Week is a celebration of the amazing contributions volunteers make to communities across the UK.

It starts on the first Monday in June every year – and this year is the 40th anniversary of the annual event.

During the week, there will be a wide range of online and in-person activities across the country, to recognise and celebrate volunteers.

This year, Volunteers’ Week will finish in The Big Help Out, from Friday 7th June to Sunday 9th June, which will see people across the nation experiencing various volunteer taster sessions.

Celebrating Our Volunteers

We have wonderful volunteers working in all our Nehemiah retirement schemes – and we will use Volunteers’ Week to celebrate the massive contributions they make to our communities.

A heartfelt thank you to each and every one of our volunteers. You truly are amazing, and your contributions make a real difference to our communities.

Why Volunteer?

Volunteering helps others out and improves people’s lives. It also improves the volunteers’ wellbeing as it’s human nature to want to help people. Plus, it’s a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills and gain new experiences.

By volunteering, you can make someone feel much better, less lonely, and help individuals and communities to achieve tasks – volunteering is rewarding and a powerful way to make a change.

What Can Nehemiah Do To Help?

At Nehemiah, our tenants and their wellbeing are at the heart of all we do. You – our tenants – shape our policies, services, and communities.

We are so thankful for all our volunteers, to everyone who gives us feedback and takes the time to share their views with us.

If you’d like to get involved and help us to continually improve what we do, you can find out about the different opportunities available, here. We would also love to hear from any tenants who do any volunteering work.

For further information on Volunteers’ Week and how you can get involved, you can contact your Housing Officer or call us on 0121 358 0966 or email contact@nehemiah.co.uk and we will be happy to help.
