Volunteers’ Week falls at a time of national crisis as the impact of the #COVID19 pandemic continues to be felt on individuals and communities.

Helen Wilkinson, Chief Executive of Denbighshire Voluntary Services Council, a charity funded by Welsh Government to promote and support volunteering in the County and a member of Third Sector Support Wales says: This week we are encouraging everyone in the County to say an enormous THANK YOU to all the amazing #DenbighshireVolunteers who have stepped up during the #COVID19 pandemic and to thank every single person who has volunteered over the last 12 months but who might not be volunteering at the moment because they are having to shield themselves because they are vulnerable at this time. DVSC has a number of online events and activities planned to celebrate and say thank you to #DenbighshireVolunteers. We hope you will join us!”

Figures published by DVSC show a tremendous surge in volunteering in Denbighshire in response to the #COVID19 pandemic:

  • Since mid March almost 800 people registered their interest in volunteering through the #DenbighshireVolunteers platform or contacted DVSC directly via the phone or email

  • Close to 500 stepped up as #COVID19 Volunteer Community Responders in the same period

  • DVSC coordinated #COVID19 Volunteer Community Responders to provide direct assistance to over 1400 people in the past two months as part of an emergency community support service that was set up to support statutory services to focus their resource on those in urgent need!

  • This is just a snapshot and does not include all of the voluntary action happening in neighbourhoods as local voluntary and community groups and organisations

Helen Wilkinson, Chief Executive of DVSC says: “This year has really put volunteers in the spotlight with people across the County stepping up to serve with large and small acts of voluntary action supporting and protecting the most vulnerable in our society – with shopping, prescription collection, dog walking, gardening, telephone support and more - even stepping up to support and protect the NHS, public services and Care Homes. We have faced the challenge of the #COVID19 pandemic together with courage and compassion.”

To mark Volunteers’ Week, which runs from 1-7 June, DVSC is thanking all #DenbighshireVolunteers for their contribution by sharing the words of gratitude from those who have received help from volunteers on social media throughout the week whilst promoting the volunteer involving organisations DVSC has been working with.

If you want to express your thanks or tell your volunteer story, share your experience here: or contact DVSC via email: or telephone 01824 702 441.

Each day of Volunteers’ Week will focus on a different aspect of volunteering as DVSC puts particular types of volunteering in the spotlight. The themes include: volunteering in times of crisis (#VolunteersWeek), youth volunteering (#PowerOfYouth), environmental volunteering and more!
