Leave Newcastle Happy

Leave Newcastle Happy is the clean-up initiative which happens at the end of each academic year, when most students move away from their term-time addresses. It is run by Newcastle University Students' Union and funded by Newcastle University. The initiative aims to reduce any disturbance and mess in residential areas of Newcastle city, and to encourage reuse and recycling so that students do not throw away items unnecessarily.

Go Volunteer Grant Scheme

Go Volunteer's Grant Scheme can finance students' volunteering project ideas, and some amazing projects have been supported in the past.
