Volunteering can benefit you as much as the cause you choose to help. Dedicating your time as a volunteer helps you make new friends, expand your network, and boost your social skills.

The first place to look if you are interested in voluntary work is the Students' Union.

They have dedicated staff to talk to who can discuss with you the options available.

Find out more about volunteering and how you can get involved through Lancaster University Students' Union.
