Students teaching IT skills

UWE Bristol Volunteering projects

We run a range of fantastic projects in and around Bristol for you to get involved in. So if you are passionate about conservation, computing, creativity, working with people young or old, or more, check out our projects below.

Volunteer on a project run by UWE Bristol Volunteering, in partnership with local charities and not-for-profit organisations.

As a volunteer on one of our projects, you will work with other students and in partnership with the local community, allowing you to gain a broad range of experience and skills.

Projects take place during the autumn and spring terms, and are designed to fit around your studies. You can work as part of a team of volunteers, or take on additional responsibility as a Project Leader.

Aerospace Bristol

Through a partnership with Aerospace Bristol, you will help facilitate a project to help reduce social isolation in local people. You will work with the public by facilitating sessions within Aerospace Bristol – a new museum dedicated to the history of Bristol’s aerospace industry. The sessions you facilitate will tell the stories of people’s lives throughout the history of aerospace using the exhibitions and handling materials.

Creative Professionals

With this opportunity, you will be matched with creative professional roles according to the skills you are learning in your course and how you want to progress. You will complete a project brief for a charity or small organisation – an example brief could be to create a Vimeo channel and produce short films to advertise the organisation.

Whilst volunteering, you will get a chance to network with other creatives in the organisation and to produce work for your portfolio. View the Creative Professionals role description (InfoHub login required).

Schools Volunteering Programme

As a Primary School Volunteer, you will volunteer for one morning or afternoon a week in a local school. Schools appreciate volunteers who can volunteer throughout the year, but do understand that our students have exam periods. The minimum commitment is 25 hours of volunteering.

We recruit volunteers in September to start volunteering after the October half term. We also open recruitment again before Christmas for volunteers to start in February. Find out about the UWE Bristol Schools Volunteering Programme.
