Students' Union Volunteering brings you the opportunity to make volunteering whatever you want it to be. The Students' Union currently had 100's of student volunteers made up of: Sports Committees, Societies Committees, Student - Led Projects, Course Reps, Schools Reps, Hall Reps and The Freshers Welcome Team. These roles empower you, teach valuable skills and will improve your employment prospects. As a volunteer, you have the chance to lead existing projects or create new ones; the power really is in your hands.
Some current volunteers engage in educational programmes that involve going into schools and giving young pupils support and advice. Volunteers have also been involved in community development projects alongside groups like Bankside Open Spaces, a local charity that has its own green patch based here at the Student Centre. A range of other opportunities such as mentoring, helping at Victim Support and other social awareness campaigns have also been developed for students.

In addition, volunteer placements are also organised by the Employability Team at The University. For more information on these please visit University's Volunteering Page.
If you have any questions about any of the above or want to find out more please email the LSBU Volunteer Coordinator on firstname.lastname@example.org
Volunteering with LSBSU doesn't just leave you feeling great but you can also achieve awards and recognition through a range of options.
Any volunteer that logs a certain amount of hours will receive the following certificates:
- Bronze Certificate : 20 hours
- Silver Certificate: 40 hours
- Gold Certificate: 60 hours
- Platinum Certificate: 80 hours.
There will also be an award for the person who logs the most hours. This is known as Volunteer of the Year. This title is awarded at the Annual Awards Dinner held in The Kia Oval in April. The event is one of the biggest in the calendar and is not to be missed as students and staff get the chance to dress up and gather for a night of inspirational stories, great food and dancing.
