Create Your Volunteering Profile

Looking to volunteer?  Here's a step-by-step guide to volunteering through Your SU. 

  1. Once you complete your Volunteering Profile, this will allow you to keep up to date with the current opportunities available from Voluntary Organisations on our portal.

    Your volunteering experience should be an enjoyable experience, to help you, think about the following areas:

    • What are your interests?

    • What skills do you have?

    • What skills would you like to gain?

    • What do you hope to achieve?

    • How much time do you have to commit?

  2. Browse Opportunities for a full list of volunteering projects and find more detailed information.

  3. Go through the opportunities and select the one’s you are interested in.

  4. Once you have selected the “I am interested in this opportunity” button you will receive an automated message from the organisation to inform you of the next steps. This could be an instruction to complete an application form or access to the organisations website to follow their online processes.

  5. Hopefully you’ve now started your journey to securing a volunteering placement. The organisation(s) will contact you directly with further information i.e start dates, discuss how many hours you can do or to request any further details that may be required for the role.

  6. Keep us informed by completing and returning the following forms:

    These forms help you and also us to record your volunteering activity so you can gain certificates, accreditation and recognition for your volunteering work.

    We recognise your activities through:

Need help with applying or want to find out more or just want some general support?
