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.

Professionals volunteering

Organisations across Bristol are looking for students with creative skills to support their work in the community.

Why not apply now to be matched to a relevant not-for-profit organisation? They will set you a brief related to the skills you want to develop.

The timings can be arranged to suit you and the organisation, and will last roughly eight to ten weeks. Whilst volunteering, you will get a chance to network with other creatives in the organisation and produce work for your portfolio or CV.

There are a variety of roles covering areas such as graphic design, photography, filming and more.

School 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.
