Volunteering opportunities


Some volunteering roles are still available during the lockdown, which are mostly digital/remote. However there are also a small number of appropriate activities for students which has been agreed with the University’s Health and Safety Department. Government guidance sets out that volunteering is allowed currently, but do follow the Covid safety guidance to keep yourself and others safe.
