According to this October we are being asked to Make A Difference.

The event is organised by the Community Service Volunteers (CSV), a volunteering and training charity.   Founded in 1962 they aim to help our society by encouraging people to volunteer to create happy, healthy communities!

In 2010 they were recognised as the winner of The Charity Awards following the hard work put into the Volunteers in Children Protection that gave support to 130 families affected by neglect and abuse.

CSV train over 12,000 young people every year, building their skills and giving them confidence.  Especially at a difficult time, this is CSV’s way of making sure everyone’s voice is heard and valued.

Do you look after your community?   A big emphasis is put on our environment and what you could do to preserve it.   What should we be preserving?  Green spaces, old buildings that are a part of Britain’s history ... what about protecting habitats for our wildlife?
Make A Difference is the biggest event of its kind, encouraging thousands of people across the UK to take part in voluntary work.   At the official Make A Difference website you can find out everything you need to know to get involved.

If you want to set up your own activity they have lots of resources, help and advice to get you started.   Schools, universities, friends and workplaces can get involved, or you can simply volunteer for one of the thousands of projects happening across the country - details of which can be found on the site.

31 days and 31 ways
Each day of October our intrepid volunteers and brilliant partners are going to help us to provide inspiration so we will all get up, get going and get active.

Whatever your passion, whenever you have time and where ever you are – we're working with some of the nation's favourite charities to showcase the ways that you can volunteer in your community.

Everyone can make a difference

From stories of first-time volunteers, words of wisdom from volunteering veterans, and how-to guides from charity partners our 31 ways will showcase how easy it is to get involved with the community and how great it feels to make a difference.

In the meantime, as we gather momentum for an exciting October of volunteering, this will be your place to find out how to get involved and help us inspire others to take part.

How can you make sure you keep up to date with our Make a Difference month?

This your chance to try something different and get hands-on with your local community, so why not give it a go?
