Welcome Helpers play a vital role in supporting new students and helping them settle into University life.  We are now recruiting for Welcome Helpers and Welcome Helper Team Leaders to help during Welcome Weeks in September 2016.

This will be a fantastic experience and a great way to develop key skills in a fun and (at times) challenging environment. To find out more about the role you can read the role description here

Would you like to make new friends, have fun, gain extra experience, build your skills or enhance your CV?  

Maybe you’d like to apply the learning from your course or do something that benefits someone else or the environment?

Volunteering can help you do all this! Volunteering is any activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the community, environment or individuals who are not related to you.

To register as a volunteer, please click here.

After you have registered, UCSU will send you a 'welcome' email and an hours sheet to record all the time you spend volunteering whilst you’re a student. These hours all count towards your UCSU Volunteering Certificate. As well as recieving regular bulletins with details of volunteering opportunities you can also check out the current opportunities on our website. If you have something specific in mind please email UCSU Volunteering Facilitator Kati Brown with the details and she will try and accomodate your needs.

If you would like to discuss an idea for an individual Volunteering Project or a one-off project day, please contact Kati Brown - kati.brown@cumbria.ac.uk
