This new week we focus our attention on new campaigns for community awareness.
Monday 12th is "International Epilepsy Day", a day which aims to raise awareness of this disease and challenges myths and stigmas surrounding it. You can find more about it here.
Student Volunteering Week, led nationally by the Student Volunteering Network , will be happening from the 12th February to 18th February. Universities and schools across the country step up to take part in the week, organising opportunities or events to encourage their students to volunteer and help their local communities.
Communities 1st and our member organisations offer a variety of different volunteering roles which can be found here.
"Thank you" to everyone who came to see us at our community centres this past week (5th to 9th February) and attended our "Grow Your Own Sunshine - Family Activity & Learning Sessions", an inclusive community gardening project for all ages. We hope to keep on growing our sunshine in the summer time.
Communities 1st would like to wish "Happy Chinese New Year" to everyone celebrating it (Saturday 10th February)!
We wish you a lovely weekend!
