We are now recruiting recruiting Lead Volunteers and there are a variety of projects that are looking for leads in the 2018/2019 academic year. Whatever your interests and passions are, we hope to have a project to suit you. Feel free to apply for more than one.


Lead volunteers are students who undertake the additional responsibility of coordinating a group of volunteers on their project. The role varies from project to project: some adopt an administrative role and others actively lead sessions with volunteers and beneficiaries.
