Volunteering

Go Volunteer help students at Newcastle University to find the ideal community volunteering opportunity. Anyone can volunteer – it doesn't matter who you are or where you are from…and it’s FREE! Their volunteering opportunities are designed with students in mind and require no previous experience.

As well as projects within NUSU and running their own exciting student led projects, they also have great links to over 100 charities and not for profit organisations within the local community who are always looking for student volunteers.

Go Volunteer offer one-off as well as regular, long term opportunities, so whether it’s volunteering with the Guerrilla Gardeners, growing fresh produce at Cockle Park Farm, helping out with projects for children, the elderly, disadvantaged communities or one-off fundraising for a good cause they can find the perfect project for you. And if that’s still not enough, they can even help you start up your own project!
