Volunteers' Week 2017
Thank you to all of you who volunteer to help Shelter fight bad housing and homelessness. You really make a difference – and we couldn’t do it without you.
About Volunteers' Week
Volunteers’ Week is an annual event that takes place from the 1-7 June, celebrating the fantastic contributions made by millions of volunteers across the UK.
To say thank you to our amazing volunteers this year, we’re sending gift packs and decorations to our service hubs, who will be hosting events like treasure hunts and picnics in the park. We’ll also be decorating Shelter shop windows around the country, and arranging lots more brilliant surprises along the way.
Hear from our volunteers
From shops, to service hubs, here’s what our volunteers enjoy most about their time with Shelter.
Volunteering has given me the opportunity to discover more about myself and the world around me – and an excuse to meet new people!
Events & Community Fundraising Volunteer
I love being on the shop floor because it gives you the opportunity meet people, and spread the awareness of what Shelter is trying to do with affordable housing.
Shops Assistant Manager
I enjoy the feeling of satisfaction when I have done the work and feeling that I’ve made a small contribution towards what is a very sad and serious problem.
Services Admin Assistant Volunteer
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.
We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
