Sign Up Now – Our New Volunteering Platform

In 2021 we’ve been making some changes and hoping to improve our volunteering platform to suit the evolving needs that we have come across throughout the pandemic and adjust and adapt as we move into this New Year. 

With this in mind we have transitioned to and created a Community Action: MK, Doit.Org site. We feel that this platform will better suit the needs of groups and volunteers as we move forwards. We are still in the process of launching so you will hear more about the platform in the coming weeks, we’d especially like to encourage organisations to create their profile page and begin upload volunteering opportunities so that when officially launch volunteers will see the variety of opportunities available in MK. More details below including, videos guiding you through the platform and upcoming support sessions.

Inclusion not Exceptionalism: How to effectively support (your) Black+ colleagues in the workplace.

Conflict can be an opportunity for change, if it is embraced for what it can help us to become more aware of. It becomes a problem when we ignore the lessons it throws up for us. The currently resurgent (not new) racial tensions, however tragic the events that triggered them, can be a window of opportunity to move the needle in the right direction on racial equality and inclusion.

Volunteering: What’s it like?

Volunteering is a great way to give back. The act of volunteering itself reaches not only the organisation and their beneficiaries, but creates a domino effect of reaching people who hear about acts of volunteering, regarding their kindness as emotionally uplifting; it reaches those near and dear to those in need; and it reaches YOU.
