Welsh Charities Week is back from 13 – 17 November to recognise the good work of charities, social enterprises, voluntary organisations and community and volunteer groups in Wales.
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
The last few years have seen the sector and country as a whole endure a series of challenges and difficult circumstances. Welsh Charities Week is a chance to recognise and celebrate all the work that people and organisations across the voluntary sector in Wales do to shine a bit of light in the dark. It’s an opportunity to come together and show appreciation, to remind people that what they do makes a difference.
Wales has a long, storied history of volunteering and voluntary action which remains the case even now.
Over the course of the week we’ll be sharing stories, saying thanks and highlighting the good work that people in Wales do. We want the entire sector to get involved, whether that’s charities, volunteers, community groups or social enterprises, we want to hear about it all.
Keep an eye out on the #WelshCharitiesWeek hashtag on social media, where we’ll be posting and reposting about the stories that matter most to you. We’ll also be encouraging you to take part and help spread the message.
Welsh Charities Week is a great time to help give something back, by showing appreciation, fundraising or even volunteering. With the new Volunteering Wales platform it’s easier than ever for volunteers to sign up and lend their experience and good will to the sector, and there’s no better time to register than now.
KEEP AN EYE OUT
We’ll let you know more details as we get closer to the date, but in the meantime you can see some of the inspirational stories and messages we’ve gathered during previous years on the website. You can also sign up to our mailing lists to get information about Welsh Charities Week straight into your mailbox.
