Plan your Summer
with our Listing of Student Volunteering Opportunities
Volunteering is a great way to gain valuable work place experience, find out more about different careers and give something back to the local community.
Different organisations have different volunteer policies and some may not be able to accept volunteers who are under the age of 16 or 18. This may be due to issues such as insurance or safeguarding of vulnerable individuals. So to help you get started we have compiled a listing of local volunteering opportunities for students and under 16s.
