Volunteering offer from the University of Brighton

26 July 2021

Could you do with increasing your volunteering capacity? Active Student, the University of Brighton’s dedicated volunteering team, have over 300 students who need to complete either 30 or 50 hour volunteering placements.

Active Student wants to work in partnership with organisations from the third and public sectors and welcomes contact from anyone who could benefit from a student giving them up to 50 hours of volunteering.

These roles can be in situ (government Covid 19 restrictions permitting) or remote. They can include working with vulnerable people from all walks of life, ages and abilities; animals; the environment; nutrition and food; healthcare to name a few. This list is not exhaustive.

Placements start from October 2021 and are completed by July 2022 (dependent on the course).

When you support a placement you benefit from students’ new ideas and you will be helping the workforce of the future by giving students the opportunity to gain knowledge and make a positive contribution to a real life project.

Active Student is proud that each year some of its students make such an impact that organisations go on to offer them employment after their placement has ended.

If you have insurance that covers volunteers, can support a student volunteer just as you would another volunteer then please contact Active Student today!
