is for volunteering
Last year throughout Self Management Week we celebrated the theme of physical activity. With Scotland hosting the Commonwealth Games 2014, involving 15,000 people volunteering as Clyde-siders and the Self Management Campaign being part of Legacy 2014 the theme this year will be volunteering.
This year, Self Management Week will take place the week beginning 29th September 2014 and will have a focus on volunteering. It aims to improve understanding on how volunteering can be used as a tool for self management as well raising awareness of self management in Scotland.
What is involved?
We are asking people to support ‘V is for Volunteering’ as a progression from last years ‘Pass the Baton’ on Twitter to show support for self management. Please tweet:
Your photos of making a ‘V’ celebrating that volunteering keeps you well and helps you to self manage #SelfManagement
A statement on what volunteering means to you or how it helps self management #SelfManagement
How will the pictures be used?
We will use the photos to make a collage of supporters of self management. This collage will be used on our social media sites, website and on some of our campaign materials. * We will re-tweet the photos to encourage others to #SelfManagement
