The Volunteering Fair is a great day for you to find out more about volunteering, which roles might be right for you and to meet like-minded people interested in giving back. As well as being a great way to make a worthwhile difference within the community, volunteering can be a way for people to share their skills or learn new skills, gain relevant experience for work or study, or pursue hobbies and interests.
Charities at the Fair will include charities working; with animals, in arts and heritage, environment, health and social care, recovery, housing, community development, victim support, sport and wellbeing and those working with refugees and asylum seekers. There will be many opportunities, in different areas and activities, which the charities will be able to talk directly with visitors about.
The Volunteering Fair falls on University Mental Health Day, and is an event being jointly held with SHSU Student Opportunities and Hallam Union (HUBS), but there are many ways volunteering can help contribute to good mental health and wellbeing no matter which stage people are at in life.
The Volunteering Fair is open to everyone - volunteering is for everyone - and we look forward to seeing you at the fair!
