Staff Volunteering Survey 2017

(12 May 2017)

Have you filled in the Staff Volunteering Survey yet? If you volunteer in any shape or form, inside or outside the University, which is not currently facilitated through the Staff Volunteering scheme we'd love to hear about it (and by completing the survey you also have the chance of winning £75 worth of tickets to Kynren at Bishop Auckland).

**Closing date - 19th May 2017**

Durham University staff have been actively volunteering in work time since 2009. Our Staff Volunteering programme is nationally accredited and recognised as one of the leading such programmes in the UK and our staff can therefore be justifiably proud of the immense contribution they make to our local and wider communities. In 2015-16 our staff contributed over 3,000 hours of volunteer time through over 50 organised team days and other voluntary activities.

But we also know that our staff volunteer, in their own time, inside and outside of the University, in myriad other ways and we would love to know more about that. If we can understand more about what our staff do it will help us to:

  • acknowledge how staff voluntarily add significant value to the University, outside of their core roles, e.g. for congregation, events, mentoring, research groups, voluntary consultancy, student support, steering groups
  • identify the level to which our staff also contribute to wider society in its entirety
  • identify any gaps in provision in the staff scheme
  • identify new charities and community partner networking opportunities
  • promote, support and celebrate that volunteering

So, if you volunteer in any shape or form, inside or outside the University, which is not currently facilitated through the Staff Volunteering scheme we'd love to hear about it (and by completing the survey you also have the chance of winning £75 worth of tickets to Kynren at Bishop Auckland).
