About Us

Student Led Volunteering is exactly that - volunteering projects and events which are organised and led by students with your lifestyle in mind. They offer a diverse range of one off volunteering opportunities open to all throughout the academic year which take place outside of core study hours on either Wednesday afternoons, weekday evenings or all day at the weekends. Meet like-minded students who share your passion for helping others and making a difference in the local community. With no ongoing commitment you can sign up and attend as many or as few sessions as you like, fitting them into your schedule when it suits you. Meeting on campus, all transport, costs and refreshments during the day/afternoon are provided by the SU. 

The current projects are:

  • Green Team: They aim to get you out of the city, enjoying, exploring and caring for the diverse landscapes of Devon and Cornwall. The focus is on restoration, conservation and management of culturally and environmentally important areas.
  • Animal conservation: They aim to broaden the student experience of practical animal conservation whilst having fun and learning new skills.  
  • Special Olympics: volunteering with Special Olympics helps to make a real positive difference to the projects members, socialise with and engage the members in sporting activities. With no commitment to attend all of the sessions you can sign up depending on your availability.

***These projects are temporarily on hold and volunteer days out will be reintroduced as and when our charity partners are ready to accommodate volunteers again. Student led volunteering will be putting on a range of online volunteering events and some face to face volunteering in small groups. By purchasing a FREE membership you will be the first to know about these events.
