Welcome to Royal Holloway Volunteering!
Royal Holloway Volunteering’s first digital Festival of Volunteering took place during Welcome Week, this event held several virtual MS Teams introductory and drop-in sessions, and posted oppirtunities to our Facebook and Instagram pages, as well as a takeover of the Royal Holloway Welcome App Interact chat!
Volunteering is one of the best extra-curricular activities you can take part in at University, whether you want to develop your own skills, try out future career paths, meet likeminded people or make a genuine difference in the local community.
How does it work?
First you can register on our online volunteering system. Using this system you can create a profile and search a range of different volunteering opportunities and community partners. If you find an opportunity that you are interested in, you can use the system to sign up or contact the relevant community partner!
Once you have volunteered, you can even record your volunteering hours using the system. Recording hours means that you will receive Passport points for your involvement, and will make you eligible for our bespoke Royal Holloway Inspired Awards.
Each week we send out an update featuring a selection of great opportunities. Have a look at our most recent updates!
Join the Royal Holloway Volunteering Response Team
Initiated by students for students, the Response Team is a group of students who sign up to hear about one-off opportunities and last minute volunteering opportunities. This could include supporting local community partner events, special social action project activities, or assisting the local community in another creative yet helpful way!
The Response Team role is flexible, so you can get involved with as many opportunities as you like. This is also a fantastic way to try out lots of different opportunities and activities!
If you would like to join the Response Team then show your interest by using our online platform!
