The Volunteering Officer’s work alongside and oversee the 16 Student led volunteering projects as well as hosting their own volunteering events. There are opportunities to get involved on a long term basis or as one-off event. One of our manifesto points as seen below is to introduce Make a Difference (MAD) Days, which will give student who are too busy or cannot commit on a long term basis an opportunity to volunteer.
We believe volunteering not only is a great addition to add to your CV, but it also brings a great sense of satisfaction as you are able to give something back to the community.

Current Campaigns - Our MAD Days are one of our biggest plans this year, to create a variety of one off opportunities on a consistent basis for people who cannot commit a lot of time. Our other aims are to create a volunteering community throughout the university and to celebrate volunteering.
Our committee meets every 2 weeks to discuss all things volunteering! We also meet with the Activities Officer and Anu the Student Opportunities Coordinator for Volunteering every 2 weeks. If there is anything you want mentioned in these meetings please contact us.
Our aim is to have more one-off events for people who cannot commit a lot of time. We also want to improve relations with careers and college volunteering reps.
