Volunteering

Union Volunteering Award Scheme

Within the Union, we have a number of volunteering opportunities, and within this, there is the ability to participate in our award scheme. The scheme is split into 3 areas in which you can earn an award: Student Rep Award, Club and Society Award and Active Citizenship Award. All 3 of these areas then feed into an overarching Union Award. You can also just work towards achieving the Union Award if you are doing an activity that doesn't fit into these 3 areas.
