The Big Help Out is a voluntary initiative designed to raise awareness of volunteering throughout the UK and provide opportunities for people to experience volunteering and make a difference in their communities.

Millions of people took part in the initiative on 08 May, the additional Bank Holiday to mark the coronation of King Charles III, with thousands of events run across the country.

However, the initiative was not isolated to the Bank Holiday; the Charity Commission have teamed up with Getting on Board – a charity which aims to support people from all sectors of society become charity trustees, and charities to recruit and retain a diverse range of trustees – to run a series of free webinars throughout the rest of 2023 covering what a trustee is and how to become one.

As at April 2023 there are approximately 100,000 vacancies for charity trustees in the UK, with many charities keen to diversify their boards and have individuals from a variety of backgrounds and skill sets.
