It’s Mental Health Awareness Week 2024, and this year the theme is moving for mental health. We’re sharing how you can boost your wellbeing by being active and volunteering at the same time.

Volunteering isn’t just about helping others—it can add so much to your life and wellbeing too. Add getting active to the mix and it can make even bigger changes to your wellbeing!

Cleaning up parks, leading activities, or lending a hand at events isn’t just good for the community—it’s good for your health too. Three-quarters of recent volunteers (75%) say volunteering improves their mental health and wellbeing, according to the National Council of Voluntary Organisations latest report.

Join a strong, supportive community while making a positive impact in the world. Let’s get moving and make a difference together!
