Student Led Volunteering Projects 

Got an idea that can help people? Want to be your lead on your project? From DJ workshops in local youth clubs, to baking cakes and buddy schemes, come and have a chat to us about it and we'll help you get started. A student-led project starts with an idea for a scheme or project that will make a difference to the lives of not just the students but the wider community. All projects are entirely student-led, run by student volunteers with the support of the Students' Union.

You can make new friends, help in the community, campaign and fundraise for causes that you care about and enhance your university experience. It's not too late to give it a go.
