The Big Help Out

The Big Help Out is a day dedicated to volunteering as part of the King’s Coronation Celebrations. It will be a day when the country comes together to recognise the Royal legacy of service, and participate in volunteering to help their own community.

The campaign encourages thousands of people to try their hand at volunteering, perhaps for the first time. Why not join in on the Bank Holiday Monday, 8th May?

Thank You Day 2023

In June last year 8.7million people participated in Thank You Day

After another tough year our family, friends and communities have never felt more important. With rising prices, economic and political uncertainty, the bonds and connections we have with one another, which help us face these challenges together matter more than ever.

Sunday 2nd July is the UK’s 3rd annual Thank You Day. It is a day dedicated to getting communities together to say thank you. Because everyone deserves to be celebrated – Thank you costs nothing and means the world, especially in the way we value and appreciate each other.

Whether that’s hosting a thank you party for volunteers, throwing a BB-Thank- Q, or attending a local Thank You Music concert. It’s a chance to say thank you for for everything that makes our communities great places to live in – including everyone that participated in The Big Help Out!

Christmas Plus One

Many of us got to know our neighbours through the pandemic, by dropping round shopping and looking out for each other. We don’t want those positive connections to fade – so we’re asking the UK public to bring a ‘Plus One’ to their Christmas plans.

It could be for a frosty walk, a trip to the Christmas markets, or for a pint down their local – whatever works for you and your Plus One.

Give Someone a Bell this Christmas

Christmas 2020 was unlike any we’ve experienced, we worked across the sectors to build our ‘Give Someone a Bell This Christmas’ campaign. Working closely with the Royal Voluntary Service, we encouraged people to sign up as befrienders through the NHS Volunteer Responder programme, and put some weight behind a grassroots Facebook campaign called ‘Christmas Jingle’.

Thank You/together

In July 2020, with COVID-19 restrictions still in place, we teamed up with the NHS to get huge swathes of the public saying thank you to those who had helped us through the pandemic so far on the NHS’ birthday. Thank You/together was our ‘hello’ to the UK public, alerting them to the presence of our new, diverse and powerful coalition, and saying that we must do more to create kinder, closer and more connected communities.

From community groups, clubs and societies of all sizes, to some of the UK’s best known and most trusted organisations and businesses, we are joining /together to build kinder, closer and more connected communities.
