About

Welsh Charities Week will take place between the 21 – 25 November 2022. The aim of the week is to recognise and shine a light on the amazing work of charities, voluntary organisations, community groups and volunteers across Wales.

Charities are not only a lifeline for the most vulnerable they are there for people in the good times and the bad, taking seemingly small steps that add up to a big difference.

Organised by WCVA, Welsh Charities Week is supported by ITV Cymru Wales.

Get Involved

Let’s #MakeABiggerDifferenceTogether during #WelshCharitiesWeek. Volunteer, donate or give a shout out to your favourite charity or voluntary group!

Whether you work or volunteer with a charitable organisation or you just want to big up a charity that you love, there are plenty of ways to get involved in Welsh Charities Week.

Give them a shout out on social media

Give them a shout out on your social media platform of choice. Tell us why you love them and remember to use #WelshCharitiesWeek.

Say ‘well done’ to a group you admire, or tell us how a particular charitable organisation has had a real effect on your life or the life of someone you care about.

Donate

Welsh Charities Week is the perfect time to make a donation to your favourite charity. Many of us are feeling the pressures of the cost of living crisis but remember it doesn’t have to be a cash donation – it could be a bag of clothes or other items for your local charity shop, or you could even donate some of your time by volunteering (see below).

For more ideas, please download our campaign pack.

Why not tell the world about your donation and why you’ve made it. Post an update using #MakeABiggerDifferenceTogether on social media.
