Volunteers’ Week 2021

Today #VolunteersWeek2021 draws to a close and as it does we want to take time to thank all of the employee-volunteers who give time to contribute to making York a better place.

York Cares is an employee-volunteering charity and this means that without the support of our employer members and there employee-volunteers, our programmes would not happen. It’s our employer-members and all of the employee-volunteers who get involved that make a difference across our 6 programmes.

We feel very lucky to have so much support from employee-volunteers in the city and are always blown away by the impact that even a short amount of time spent volunteering can have. Whether that’s supporting a primary school pupil with their reading, helping an older person with their tech needs to reduce isolation, or taking part in a team challenge, all of the employee-volunteers who get involved make a difference.

It’s been wonderful to begin welcoming employee-volunteers back to face to face activity recently and we hope to see this increase over the coming months. There are lots of opportunities to get involved so please get in touch for more information.

To everyone who has ever volunteered with York Cares thank you, we think you are wonderful.
