Volunteering at RUSU

Students volunteer for a variety of reasons; from meeting new people, to gaining new skills to put on their CV, or helping others by getting involved with a cause that truly matters to them!

Here at RUSU we offer a variety of volunteering opportunities to suit your interests, skills and availability. You can either get involved with a student-led volunteering project; take part in one of our MAD Days, sign up to our mailing list for opportunities with local organisations, or start your very own volunteering project!

To find out more about volunteering click on the below tabs or come and visit us in the Student Activities Office located in the RUSU building. Alternatively, like us on Facebook to find out about volunteering on the go.
