Think Global Act Local

In our interconnected world we’re facing many global challenges which impact on our local communities. Give a day or more to one of our local volunteering opportunities and you’ll be helping to create a better world.

Volunteering Taster Sessions 

Think Global Act Local volunteering taster sessions give you the opportunity to spend a day making a difference in the local community alongside other students. You’ll be able to meet people from a diverse range of backgrounds, and develop your skills and global outlook. 

On a taster session you could be doing things like supporting a charity event taking place in the city; getting involved in practical tasks in local green spaces; or helping with reusing and recycling initiatives. Whatever you choose, you’ll be giving something back whilst having fun. Our friendly Global Community Assistants will be with the group at each session to make sure everyone has a good time.

There are 10 - 20 places available for each session and bookings open 2 weeks in advance. Click on the link below to book your place or join the waiting list. Please only book a place if you are sure that you can attend and cancel your booking straight away if your availability changes. 

Currently, there are no volunteering taster sessions planned. This page will be updated when they become available.

All taster sessions meet the UK Visas and Immigration definition of volunteering. For more information on visas and volunteering see guidance on work restrictions.
