Welcome to your latest update from the Volunteering Team here at The Children’s Society, which is packed full of information and new resources for you to use in your upcoming talks and community engagements.

It’s Volunteers’ Week!

Each year in the first week of June, we take advantage of National Volunteers’ Week to celebrate everything you, our amazing volunteers and supporters, do. If you are out and about delivering talks or meeting supporters this week, please say thank you from all of us at The Children’s Society. The time and skills you give us help to ensure that we can continue supporting the most vulnerable young people when they need us most. The Children’s Society simply couldn’t exist without our movement of over 8000 volunteers and we want to say an enormous THANK YOU for everything that you do.

A special thank you!

Well done to our wonderful Campaign Champion, Alison Smith, for securing time with her MP Caroline Nokes, who is also the Immigration Minister. Alison highlighted the challenging work we do to support refugee and migrant young people and their families.

Burton on Trent Committee Chairperson, Jill Rogers

Jill played a pivotal role in helping to increase funds for the group last year. Jill’s passion and commitment for The Children’s Society is evident in everything she does, and for over 30 years she has supported, fundraised and campaigned tirelessly. It is through her continued efforts that the Committee is thriving.

The group raised an incredible £300 in one evening! They raised this impressive sum whilst doing what they like best...socialising and having fun and filling their bellies at the local buffet.

Brilliant new online advice hub

Were you Seriously Awkward as a teenager?

We have launched the next phase of our Seriously Awkward campaign. Vital support falls short for 16 and 17 year olds, and can disappear overnight at 18. The Children’s Society is calling on the Children’s Minister to give vulnerable 16 and 17 year olds more support.
