When: Dates and times are flexible

Where: Various locations

DBS required: No


Clean Up Cardiff

If you are passionate about the place you live then this is the project for you! You will be part of a great team of enthusiastic people who help to keep the streets of Cardiff clean of litter! Events will take place every Wednesday afternoon at different locations in Cardiff, with some further afield beach cleanups planned as well, we may even be sneaking in the odd beach picnic or barbecue! This project is new and we'll be adding loads of new activities so we're looking for motivated volunteers.

When: Wednesday afternoons for 1 or 2 hours (you don't have to volunteer every Wednesday)

Where: Around Cardiff 

DBS required: No


Global Gardens Project 

**We are looking for lead volunteers for this project for the 2018-19 academic year**

The Global Gardens Project is about coming together to celebrate ecological and cultural diversity. Weekly organic gardening sessions at the Global Gardens allotment site in Heath and a monthly supper at the Embassy Café aim to support those seeking sanctuary, including refugees and asylum seekers. Help in the garden or kitchen and get involved in the Embassy Cafe befriending scheme.

When: Saturday 2-5pm (does not need to be every Saturday)

Where: Heath, Cardiff

Waste Not, Want Not 

**We are looking for lead volunteers for this project for the 2018-19 academic year**

Set up by a Medic Undergraduate student in 2015, students help redistribute foodstuffs from the Students' Union catering outlets to local homelessness charities. This provides a treat to people in need and makes valuable use of food that would otherwise be binned. Volunteers also help minimise the Students' Union overall waste. 

More info here if you want to apply for a lead volunteer position.

When: Wednesdays and Fridays at 6pm

Where: Students' Union/City Centre

DBS required: No
