My Volunteering

** We have a new volunteer management system from the 1 October 2018 ALL volunteers will need to follow the below steps to volunteer through the University's staff volunteering scheme**

Below is some helpful information to get you volunteering:

New Volunteer:

1) Register your interest - A member of the SVO Team will then contact you to discuss your interests

Ready to volunteer Individually (not as part of a Team Challenge):

1) Register as a volunteer and note your volunteering on the form - The same link can be used to log further hours.
2) Send the link (Line Manager Authorisation Form) to your department line manager. Failure to get your volunteering authorised will result in the University Insurance being void and your absence from work being noted as unauthorised
3) Have a great time!

Wish to volunteer as part of a Team Challenge:

1) Contact the SVO Office: 0191 334 2176 or - A member of the team will provide all of the information you need.

The SVO team are happy to answer any questions or give advise of volunteering opportunities. Please feel free to drop us an email or give us a call (details above)
