Overseas volunteering

UCSU has funding available from the Eleanor Peel Trust, allocated to activities that are seen to be of benefit to the social and cultural awareness of UoC Students and which make a contribution to the community in which the student carries out the activity.

Funding awards for qualitfying activities are available all year round but bear in mind that new funding allocations occur in August.

Setting up your own project

If you are planning to set up a volunteering opportunity which is then open to other students at the University of Cumbria, benefitting them and the local/university community, there may be funding available to help you set up your project.

As this is considered on an individual basis, please e-mail our volunteering service with broad details of what you are planning to do and they will get in touch with you to discuss any funding and other support that may be open to you.
