Welsh Charities Week – 13-17 November 2023
Written by jamie | Published on 13th November 2023
Welsh Charities Week is back from 13 – 17 November, recognising the amazing work of charities, social enterprises, voluntary organisations and community and volunteer groups in Wales.
The last few years have seen the voluntary 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 show people the difference our sector makes.
HOW YOUR ORGANISATION CAN GET INVOLVED
There are plenty of easy ways to get involved in #WelshCharitiesWeek. Here are some of the ways voluntary organisations can get involved:
- SHARE A SHORT VIDEO: Create a video about your work on social media and remember to use #WelshCharitiesWeek. We’ve created a simple guide on how to create your video.
- HIGHLIGHT YOUR STAFF OR VOLUNTEERS: Tell the world about a staff member, volunteer or team and the difference they make by posting on social media, or organise a celebration for them using one of our Party Packs. Post your thank you message and any photos you might have on social media using #WelshCharitiesWeek (please make sure you have the consent of everyone featured).
- SHARE THE CAMPAIGN PACK: Send the Welsh Charities Week campaign pack to your friends, supporters and partners and ask them to support your work by getting involved in Welsh Charities Week.
GETTING INVOLVED AS AN INDIVIDUAL
Whether you work or volunteer with a charitable organisation or you just want to big up a charity that you love, there are plenty of ways to get involved in Welsh Charities Week.
Volunteer, donate or give a shout out to your favourite charity or voluntary group!
