Last year we provided funding and support to more than 20 new student led volunteer projects and this year we're doing the same again! Got an idea for a new volunteering project? If you are a student at Newcastle University you could be in with the chance to get funding from NUSU. All you have to do is get in touch! Not matter how wacky or practical your idea is, as long as it benefits others (and of course is a form of volunteering) we want to hear it. Some projects we have given grants to in the past include:
- Patchwork Mural – our art students designed a mural on Benwell Community centre
- Caked by the Nation - a creative campaign to raise money for orphans in Indonesia. This project involving nominating a friend to be 'caked' in the face.
- INTOgration - helping INTO students with their English language skills
- N.E.S.T. Beyond Barriers - filming videos to help refugees learn English.
- Success 4 All - coding robots with kids to send 'into space'.
