The Big Help Out

This year, King Charles III will be using his coronation to shine a light on volunteering and the good work that we can all do.

The Big Help Out on 8th May is the national day of volunteering, and we will be using this platform as an opportunity to encourage, champion and celebrate all volunteering throughout the year.

We are asking the people of Dorset to make a pledge to volunteer. 

Imagine, if every person aged 14+ in Dorset gave just one hour, we would have a contribution of 326,057 hours of help, skills and kindness to support our community.

So how can you get involved? Are you willing?
