Want to get more out of your volunteering? Charity based volunteering involves making a regular commitment over a longer time period. For example, you may volunteer a few hours a week for six months or more, but this depends on your chosen opportunity.
We have a wide range of roles and are linked with over 150 community partners, so you are bound to find something that suits your interests. Whether you like working with people, animals, getting outdoors or want to gain work experience in a professional environment, we can support you into volunteering that’s right for you.
The Volunteering Team also runs its own long-term projects so it’s worth keeping an eye out for these.
Volunteering for an extended period allows you to further develop your employable skills and to have a real impact on the community. You will also be able to form closer relationships with those you volunteer with, hopefully meaning you will have more to take away from the experience.
