Hello!

I’m Holly and last week I started in my new role as Head of Partnerships and Impact for #iwill. It’s been an exciting time to join, and I am eager to start working with you all in our mission to take #iwill from a campaign to a movement!

Over the coming weeks I’d really like to meet as many of you as possible – young #iwill Ambassadors, partners, funders and stakeholders. If you’d like to get in touch directly, then please get in touch – my email is holly.notcutt@volunteeringmatters.org.uk

I’m keen that we keep everyone involved in the #iwill movement up to date, so we will be posting regular updates here over the coming weeks and months.

Power Of Youth day packs are out: have you got yours?

The efforts and actions of young people across the UK are central to the #iwill movement. We all play a key role in recognising the work of young people in growing the #iwill movement. Power of Youth day, on 2 June, is our opportunity to shine a light on this great work across the UK  – recognising the strength and resilience young people have shown throughout the pandemic.

We want the #iwill movement to share young people’s stories and experiences, using #PowerOfYouth,  to ensure they are part of the solution as society recovers from the pandemic.
