Getting involved in the activities of the University or helping out in the wider community is very rewarding, and will leave you not only with a great sense of achievement, but also gives you the chance to meet new people and develop new skills.
The mission of SheffieldVolunteering is to inspire the spirit of active citizenship in students and staff, and enable them to contribute to the regeneration of our city. SheffieldVolunteering is a Union organisation that connects volunteers with the right opportunities. Whether you want to volunteer for just a few hours, or get involved in an ongoing project, they can help.
