‘RU Inspired’ is our volunteering scheme and it provides a range of one off and longer term volunteering opportunities. The one off opportunities are known as MAD (Make A Difference) Projects, recruiting a high number of volunteers to have a positive impact either on campus or in the local community. Projects last year included Thames Clean Up with Thames21 and a Tea Party for the elderly.
In addition we aim to create partnerships/opportunities that will compliment your studies and enhance your CV. Through the Volunteering opportunities, RSU are able to give opportunities to students on all courses including Education, Criminology and Psychology.
RSU also have a reward and recognition scheme where the student who puts in the most hours of volunteering could be rewarded with the chance to take part in an exciting and potentially life changing volunteering abroad trip.
Volunteering is a great way to have fun, meet friends and give back to the community.
