EUSA Volunteers
Student volunteers

The Volunteering Service run by Edinburgh University Students’ Association provides local community groups and third sector organisations with an opportunity to work with our student volunteers.  The Association provides a free online service where local groups can post what they’re looking for.  Student volunteers are then matched to opportunities, and given advice, guidance and support.

Groups seeking volunteers should be UK-based, and meet certain terms and conditions, eg be volunteer-led, a not-for-profit or a social enterprise, and so on.  

There are lots of great examples of successful volunteer pairings, from environmental conservation to marketing advice to help with websites to supporting elderly or disabled people.  Visit the Association’s webpage to find out how you can connect with our students and learn more about how students are working with the community.
