To volunteer is a great way to contribute to the community, meet new people and make a real difference to others.
With around 37,000 student members, we have a strong and powerful voice, that when united can bring about big changes.

Coming Soon!

We’re working on our new volunteering platform, to bring you the chance to volunteer with other students for a cause you care about.

Our student societies and sport clubs are running volunteering projects in the local community, or you could volunteer through the Students’ Union to support your peers, promote wellbeing and make their university experience even better.
