Volunteers' Week 2022
A time to say thanks!
Volunteers' Week is an annual celebration of the contribution millions of people make across the UK through volunteering.
It's a chance for us all to recognise the fantastic contribution volunteers make to our communities and to say thank you.
We're incredibly blessed at Cloverleaf to have an amazing dedicated team of volunteers that help us to deliver peer support groups and services within the communities we serve.
After an incredibly difficult couple of years, we want to celebrate and show our appreciation to our volunteers for their continued support and invaluable contribution.
Figures from the volunteersweek.org website show that:
- 16.3m people volunteered through a group, club or organisation in 2020/21.
- Most people have formally volunteered at some point in their lives, dipping in and out of involvement over time.
- Volunteering patterns changed substantially during the pandemic.
- Almost one in five (17%) people reported volunteering at least once a month, about 9.2m people.
- Less visible is informal volunteering, which includes a wider range of activities including unpaid help for someone who is not a relative. In 2020/21, 54% of the population (29.4m) volunteered informally at least once a year and 33% (17.9m) did so at least once a month.
In addition to the 'feel-good factor' that comes from helping others, volunteering always improves volunteers' well-being too!
From helping you gain valuable new skills and experience to boosting your confidence. There are so many benefits to giving your time to help others.
