Updated: Feb 4
From the State of the Sector survey, a large number of organisations mentioned they needed help with more volunteers. With students returning to campus, SU volunteering is on the hunt for new volunteering opportunities to empower our students to support the local community.
We have an online volunteering portal where Charities and Non-profits can create an account and recruit volunteers.
You can see what we are already advertising here: www.thesubath.com/volunteer/browse

Useful Term dates to know
· Term 2 is running from 7th February until 25th April. These are the best dates to have volunteers as we will have the most in Bath during that time.
· After Exams some students maybe around for the summer plus others will want to volunteer virtually. Summer Holidays start on 6th June.
· Most students will be in exams from 9th May – 5th June
· The main reason activities are slowed being added to the system are due to issues with recruiting dates.

* We try to fit opportunities within terms or for the academic year. We find students don’t apply for opportunities that straddle academic years as it involves a long summer period where they are not in Bath. We can advertise summer opportunities separately and We can start recruiting over the summer for October 2022 activities.
** We limit recruitment of roles to no longer than a month (Exceptions made in the holidays to be a bit longer) We do this so that the page is constantly up to date.
· We are predominantly looking for volunteering activities but we can advertise fundraising opportunities if they are linked to an event or existing activity. We cannot advertise for students to the fundraiser of their own back on your behalf, as these clashes with what Bath RAG do for the Big 4 Grant – which is now accepting applications until the end of Feb.
Get in touch
