Volunteers’ Week 2022: Apply for funding to thank your volunteers
Get involved and support our theme for Kirklees this year – ‘A Time to Say ThankS’
#VolunteersWeekKirklees #VWK2022 – 1st to 7th June 2022
National Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June) is an annual event to recognise the contribution that millions of people make across the UK through volunteering. It is an opportunity for us to formally recognise and say ‘thank you’ to volunteers in Kirklees. TSL Kirklees want to help organisations in Kirklees show their appreciation and celebrate the important role of Volunteers.
Volunteer-run projects or groups in Kirklees (without paid staff) and organisations with fewer than 10 paid staff can apply for up to £100 to pay for an activity, event or item to say thank you to their volunteers and recognise their invaluable work. Each group will also receive a pack of thank you cards to personalise and give out. The money can be spent on anything from gifts to vouchers, goodie bags to cakes or afternoon tea deliveries or an event or get-together.
In return, we’d like you to send us your photos, quotes, stories and case studies about your group or one particular volunteer for us to share as part of our online Volunteers’ Week celebrations. You can join in by following us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtags #VolunteersWeekKirklees or #VWK22, and liking, posting and sharing.
How to Apply
You can apply by clicking the button below to download the application form, giving us a few basic details about your group and your volunteers, and sending it back to firstname.lastname@example.org
We aim to let everyone know by Friday 20th May if their application has been successful.
The deadline for applications is Monday 16th May 2022.
