From spending your summer volunteering abroad to a working as a support worker, volunteering comes in all shapes and sizes. Not only does offering your time to a good cause help people who need it most, but volunteering will also allow you to acquire new skills, boost your CV, and even get you some extra qualifications.

We continuously ensure that all of the charities and organisations we work with respect the regulations and you can make the most out of the opportunity in a safe environment. Any time you need help or you have any issues e-mail us or come and see us in the SU.
