Volunteering in the Community

Develop your skills and experiences by making a difference in the local community.


Whether you class yourself as sporty or not, we have a range of volunteering opportunities across a number of local organisations for you to choose from. All you need to be a Sport Volunteer is an interest in sport, a can do attitude and a few spare hours a month!

Taking part in Sport Volunteering will provide you with a number of skills and networks which will benefit your University experience and future employability.

Volunteering with us also gives you the additional benefits of access to bursaries for training & development, funding towards volunteering expenses, sport kit, recognition on your HEAR transcript and support towards the ‘Making a Difference’ element of your Stellify Award.

You don't have to take our word for it. Check Vanessa's journey into Community Volunteering.
