West Yorkshire Scouts is getting ready for The Big Help Out! It is a national day of volunteering happening on 8 May, the Bank Holiday Monday of the Coronation weekend. The day’s about inspiring people to try volunteering for the first time, and will help us recruit more volunteers into the movement.
This has been developed by Scouts and the Royal Voluntary Service, and organised by the Together Coalition, we want to inspire a new generation of community volunteering. Dozens of charities will be taking part and using the day to encourage people to ‘Lend a Hand; make a change.”
One of the key aims is to make volunteering easy and accessible. Around 1 in 5 people have never been asked to volunteer, and many don’t know where to begin. to find out more download the app “The Big Help Out” now!
