Top picks by sector

We have selected a range of fantastic volunteering opportunities with charities and not-for-profit organisations across Bristol to help you find the role for you.

The opportunities we have chosen are categorised by areas of study, but do not let that limit you. Think about the skills you would like to gain and what you want to get out of volunteering and choose something that excites you.

Hear what UWE Bristol volunteer Maggie has to say about her experience volunteering with a local organisation.
