A Bit About Us

We run lots of projects working with a variety of groups in the community, including children, young people, the elderly, those with additional needs and much more! We have a range of regular projects and one-off opportunities on offer, as well as an on-line “bureau” that links you into loads of amazing volunteering opportunities with external organisations, so there is sure to be something to suit anyone who’d like to try volunteering. Whether you are just looking for a volunteering opportunity for yourself, or looking for something that your entire club or society can do to help you with your tiering then look no further .. and if you have an amazing volunteering idea that's not listed then just come and speak to us about it so we can help you make it happen!

We’re based on the 3rd floor of the Students’ Union next to Jobshop, Societies, and the Athletics Union. Here you’ll find the Societies and Volunteering Coordinators who will be able to answer any questions you may have before you apply. Our Societies and Volunteering Coordinators manage the day to day running of the Guild of Societies and Cardiff Volunteering projects.

We are here every weekday 9am to 5pm to help you find out more about all aspects of voluntary work, from our projects to volunteering for external charities. The team will give you as much information about projects as possible and provide any help and assistance you may need during the application process and beyond.
