Every February, Universities and Colleges across the UK, join in Student Volunteering Week as a way to celebrate and showcase the positive impact of volunteering. Find out how you can get involved through Christ Church Volunteering and read below to find out what’s happening this week…

We believe volunteering is important enough to deserve a week because it:

  • Supports student employability
  • Benefits volunteers’ mental and physical wellbeing
  • Provides interesting new perspectives
  • Boosts confidence
  • Reduces social isolation
  • Contributes to the wider community
