Featured Volunteer Opportunities 24.02.17

Volunteers are needed so much that there are opportunities available through volunteering that you might not find through other routes." - Lauren, a psychology graduate

This week is Student Volunteering Week. Volunteering is beneficial for everyone, but Student Volunteering Week aims to show students how useful and exciting volunteering can be, and how easy it is to fit into your study time. Get ahead and career-ready by volunteering in a role related to your course and gain valuable experience.

As always, our weekly drop-in is open for you to talk to one of our friendly team members face to face and find other opportunities if these don't suit you. It's entirely free and there's no need to book.
