Action Days

Action Days

Action days are one-off volunteering opportunities perfect for those who want to give something back, gain new skills and meet new people without an on-going commitment. Whether it’s a beach clean, event fundraiser or a party for the elderly; providing you can give up a couple of hours of your time, we’ll support you to volunteer in the local community!

Actions days are delivered by the Students’ Union or local organisations that may need volunteers for one-off events. There is a range of one-off volunteering opportunities throughout the year and you can take part in as many as you would like!

Please note that action days are filled on a first come first serve basis. If the opportunity is no longer available, we can inform you about alternative voluntary options.

You must registered as a volunteer before applying to take part in an Action Day.
