Become a Students' Union Volunteer

There are three ways to get involved with Volunteering:

Give Volunteering a Go

Give Volunteering a Go offers one-off opportunities for you to try your hand at volunteering, even if you have never volunteered before. A trained student team leader, known as a Volunteering Champion, will meet you and your fellow volunteers at a point on campus, take you to the opportunity and be there to support you throughout the day. You can volunteer at as many of these opportunities as you like, but each is no longer than one day's commitment. When you find one you like, click 'I am interested in this opportunity' and Sam from the Students' Union Volunteering team will get in touch with you.

Volunteer with our Partner Organisations

We have over 200 charity and non-profit partners who offer quality volunteering opportunities all year round. They advertise one-off events as well as regular placements so there is something to suit all interests and time commitments. Once you have set up your volunteer profile you can browse all opportunities and filter them to suit you. When you find one you like, click 'I am interested in this opportunity' and the organisation will get in touch with you.

Volunteer with our Volunteering Groups

Our Volunteering Groups are entirely student-led. Queen Mary students organise and run activities out in the local community and make a positive difference. You can volunteer alongside like-minded students by joining an existing Volunteering Group or even starting your own.

After volunteering, make sure you log your hours to be eligible for volunteering awards. Find out more about Students' Union Volunteering by clicking the buttons below.
