Start Volunteering

Volunteers are really important to the Guild and, without them, we wouldn’t be able to support students and our community. Every year, nearly 8000 students volunteer through the Guild and give their time to thousands of different projects.

There are lots of different ways that you can volunteer in the Guild, University and local community. Each project has a different time commitment (some less than an hour!) and there are loads of benefits, both for volunteers and our communities. There truly is something for everyone and it’s a great way to get involved with the Guild!

Student Led Volunteering

Here at the Guild, we support over 40 student-led volunteering groups! So, whether you’re interested in conservation, working in the community or fundraising for a great cause, there’s bound to be a group for you.

Each student group is flexible in terms of time commitment, a great place to make new friends and works to make a real difference in their community. Joining a group is a great way to give something back, all whilst having some fun!
