Cardiff Volunteering is a brand new charity that has been set up in your Students Union to get more Cardiff University Students volunteering and helping out in their community. It is run by the Student Development Manager Michelle and her team – Rachel, Steve and Chloe.
Our aim is to get students involved in volunteering by helping them do something they feel really passionate about whilst also learning new skills and meeting new people. If we don’t already run something that you are interested in, do let us know and we will either sign post you to somewhere that does, or look into setting it up!
At the moment our volunteering opportunities fall into six categories: Welfare, Sport & Recreation, Young people (Education), Young People (Social), Environment and the Community and finally Children. We offer lots of opportunities ranging from tutoring, to party planning and beach cleans so there really is something for everyone!.
We are really determined to help you guys get involved in volunteering as we know sometimes it can be a bit tricky to try and fit volunteering in around very demanding courses. To help do that, we’re going to be based in the Heath on Mondays (in the brand new Students’ Union at the Heath) and have been busy finding lots of evening and weekend volunteering opportunities for small amounts of time (e.g. 2 hours) as well as lots of one off opportunities that you will be able to fit around your studies.
