The Volunteering and Community Engagement Team hold drop-in sessions for you if you have any queries about volunteering. The drop-in sessions take place during Semester time on:
These take place virtually via Zoom. If you have any questions please use these times to access Zoom via https://zoom.us/j/95563048257 and talk to a staff member from the team. Please note that during the Zoom drop-in, your volunteering consultation will just be between you and a member of the University's Volunteering Team. Therefore when you access the Zoom drop-ins you may be placed in a waiting room if another student is having a drop-in volunteering consultation before you. This will only be a short wait and a member of the University's Volunteering Team will meet with you soon after.
At other times we can't guarantee that someone will be available to talk to you unless you have made an appointment beforehand.
