Student Led Volunteering is a project for students led by students, it is exactly what it says in the title. With no ongoing committment SLV works with partners around Devon and Cornwall to give back to the community. Here at SLV we have three main volunteering groups:

  • Animal Conservation
  • Green Team 
  • Special Olympics

Sessions run around your academic study hours so there is no interference with your timetables. It allows you to meet like-minded individuals who care for the same passions as you do. The UPSU will provide project leaders to assist you alongside project days and transport will be provided free of charge. 

Our current providers this year include: Dartmoor Zoo, Plymouth Mayflower Specials, Woodland Trust, Tulgey Woods, Devon & Cornwall Railways, The Barn Owl Trust and Moor Trees.

If you have any questions about Student Led Volunteering and want to get involved. Get in touch with the Activities team on volunteer@su.plymouth.ac.uk
