Our Volunteering Advisers can offer you support in finding a volunteering role, which will enable you to develop valuable experience, meet new people, increase employability, and give something back to the community.  Roles are available on and off campus and commitment is often flexible.


You can start by searching for Volunteering on the Careers Vacancy system, where you will find over a hundred opportunities based within 20 miles of the Ormskirk Campus.  Roles include amongst others: volunteering with children, conservation and the environment, historical projects, performing arts, and supporting offenders.


If you cannot find the right role for you on our database or wish to discuss your options further, you can book an appointment with one of our Volunteering Advisers via the Careers website.  They can discuss further options and provide guidance on applications.


Regular events are run on campus to provide you with the opportunity to speak directly with voluntary organisations.  These include Volunteering Roadshows and Careers Fairs.


Student Volunteers can log their hours towards a university recognised Volunteering Award, at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels.  Volunteers can also be nominated for the Edge Hill University Volunteer of the Year Award, which runs second Semester (or nominate organisations they volunteer with, for Voluntary Organisation of the Year)
