About Us

Volunteering is a great way to make a difference in your new local community. You’ll also get to meet loads of new people and have a lot of fun! Cardiff Volunteering offers a wide variety of different and exciting projects and one-off opportunities  to choose from which you can fit around your University schedule.

Lots of students volunteer on projects in and around the city of Cardiff, giving up their time to help improve the social, economic and environmental lives of others in the local community and gaining new skills, experiences and friends along the way – so it really is a no-brainer!

To find out more about Cardiff Volunteering and how you can get involved, drop into our office in the Skills Hub at the Students’ Union when you arrive in Cardiff. The office is open 09:00–17:00 Monday-Thursday and 09:00 - 16:00 on Fridays. Alternatively you can call or email us if you have a quick question.

Give something back

Did you know that Cardiff Volunteering is a registered charity? As a charity, Cardiff Volunteering relies on fundraising throughout the year to help support their work through hosting events such as Jailbreak and the Student Sleepout.

Following the opening of a brand new Co-op store on the ground floor of the Students’ Union building in December, we’re excited to announce that Cardiff Volunteering charity has been chosen as one of the local causes they support. From now until October 2017, money raised through the Co-op membership scheme will go towards helping Cardiff Volunteering run their great projects and help provide volunteering opportunities to students.

By becoming a member of the scheme, you can earn points each time you shop which you can spend in the future and 1% of your purchases will be donated to a charity of your choice. All you need to do is select Cardiff Volunteering as your charity and they will receive the 1%. 

Join the Co-op Membership Scheme to give something back each time you shop.
