University isn’t just about lectures, libraries and sit-down learning. Here at Go Volunteer we aim to make sure you get the most out of your time at Newcastle by offering volunteering opportunities that help you develop the skills employers look for, supplement your degree course, help the local community and make new friends.
Our opportunities range from student led projects such as growing fresh produce at Cockle Park Farm to learning beer science with our Microbrewery, assisting asylum seekers develop their English language skills and helping disadvantaged communities. We have over 150 projects for you to choose from, varying from one off, to long term opportunities, allowing you to tailor your volunteering experience around your timetable.
You can even apply for one of our grants of up to £1,000 to set up your own volunteering idea or project, with support from our team of project workers.
