Throughout June, Action Together is taking part in #MonthofCommunity to celebrate and thank everyone who has volunteered to strengthen our local communities throughout the pandemic. 

Action Together will kick off the #MonthofCommunity by taking part in the national campaign #VolunteersWeek. The theme for this year is ‘A time to say thanks’.

Each week of #MonthofCommunity (1 – 30 June 2021) will focus on a different element of volunteering:

  • Week 1 (1 – 7 June): Volunteers’ Week
  • Week 2 (8 – 14 June): Recruiting volunteers 
  • Week 3 (15 – 21 June): Reconnect with volunteers
  • Week 4 (22 – 30 June): Reflection on volunteering
