Opportunities

Volunteering

Want to give back to the community, help improve the local environment or just get involved?  The Students' Union works very closely with Community Action to provide volunteering opportunities amongst clubs and societies.  As a result of this close working relationship, you can find Community Action located on the first floor of the Students' Union building.   

Community Action

Royal Holloway’s Community Action department co-ordinates volunteering opportunties on behalf of the University and is your chance to get involved in over 200 different activities which help people in the local area, and in the process develop your skills, make new friends and build your CV.

Community Action provides support for student-led projects; puts on such transferable skills & volunteer-to-career sessions; and supports your ongoing volunteering endeavours. They organise initiatives such as Make A Difference Day, Christmas Volunteering Fortnight, Student Volunteering Week and National Volunteers’ Week. The Volunteering Fairs give you chance to engage directly with charities and community organisations, followed by Get Involved week which hosts partner introduction sessions.

Volunteers can receive recognition through the Get Recognised accreditation scheme, the Royal Holloway Passport award, and V awards. All achievements are celebrated at the annual Volunteer Awards.
