Volunteer Days are one-off opportunities, perfect if you have a busy timetable or want to try volunteering for the first time. They’re easy to access as transport is usually provided from campus and there will be staff on hand to support you throughout the day.

Volunteer Projects usually last three to six weeks, in which you often volunteer alongside other students to undertake a task or achieve an objective on behalf of a charity or community organisation. This may involve developing a marketing campaign, organising an activity session for a group of service users, or hosting a fundraising event.
Volunteer Projects are also advertised on Volunteer Hub. You can search "Volunteer Project."
The volunteer hours you will be allocated will be the actual number of volunteering hours you do.
