Volunteers' Week

Volunteers’ Week honours the amazing contributions volunteers make to communities across the UK, and we are excited to be celebrating the 40th anniversary, from Monday 3 – Sunday 9 June.

From all of us at Caritas Westminster, we would like to say a big “thank you” to our volunteers for the commitment, dedication and love they put into their work, supporting us in our mission.  If it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.  

We would also like to thank all volunteers across the diocese, whose love in action helps bring our communities together and flourish!

Stories and Quotes from Charity and Parish Volunteers

The CAFOD group I am privileged to be a part of is made up of such wonderful people. The blessings their friendship and support give me is high reward for volunteering.

Volunteering with Little Village has been a truly transformative experience for me. Over time, I have grown both personally and professionally, and the lessons I’ve learned from this experience are invaluable.

You have all become like family to me, and your influence on my life will be everlasting. The memories, shared moments, and the camaraderie we’ve built make you the best team I have ever had the privilege to work with.
