This year The Big Help Out will take place over the weekend 7th – 9th June, and more people than ever will be lending a hand!

We’ll be launching our app in April where everyone can get involved. For now please save the date and help us spread the word by pledging to take part and sharing on social media with our handy partner pack.

Lend a Hand in 2024!

A massive thank you to the 6 million* of you who joined in with The Big Help Out on Monday 8th May 2023. It was fantastic to see people coming together to lend a hand in their communities to experience how rewarding volunteering can be, and the power it has to make a change.

Over 7 million of you say you are more likely to volunteer as a result of seeing The Big Help Out in action!* 73% of volunteers say that getting involved gives them more confidence, according to research by the NCVO.

The Big Help Out is not for one day only. Our handy Platform (launching soon) helps you lend a hand all year round. There is an opportunity for everyone!

Also check out #volunteersweek on 3rd to 9th June and #thankyouday on Sunday 7th July for opportunities to come together as communities.

There’s never been a better time to join in, lend a hand, and make a change
