The Big Help Out 2024

This year we will be able to offer a huge boost in your promotion of your volunteering opportunities through The Big Help Out Campaign and app.

At no extra cost or time to you, your volunteering opportunities can automatically be shared through the app with our Volunteer Glasgow account.

The Big Help Out 2024 will take place from Friday 7th June to Sunday 9th June – coinciding with Volunteers Week.

Last year The Big Help Out 2023 had a whopping 7.2 million people talking part, and one in three Brits heard about the campaign – so this is a great chance to share your opportunities! You can find out more about The Big Help Out and its impact by clicking this link to their partner pack.

If you have any questions get in touch or if you’d prefer not to have your live opportunity shared to the Big Help Out app please let us know.
