Got some free time and want to help make a difference to your local community? Volunteer with the Students’ Union.  

Why should I volunteer? 

Not only will you be helping to make a difference to the lives of other people, you’ll also gain valuable skills and experience that’ll boost your CV and make you more employable.  

How can I get involved? 

We have a number of volunteering opportunities at the Students’ Union.  

These projects allow you to create volunteering projects of your very own. Sound like a lot of responsibility? Don’t worry, we’ll give you the funding you need to get started and support you every step of the way.  


You can also get involved in projects that are being run by other students. 


Click here to find out more about how you can get involved in an existing project or start your own. 

These projects allow you to get involved in volunteering without any long-term commitment and can take place on one of NTU’s three campuses or in the local community. 

They take a full day or less so are great way to volunteer alongside your studies. 

You can see our one-off projects here. Make sure you keep checking back for all the latest opportunities. 

This can be done at any time, from anywhere – even your bed! All you need is the internet.
