Escape the student bubble and get involved with one of the most rewarding things you can do while you're in Bristol - Volunteering!

There are a number of ways you can get involved whether you want to make a difference to the local community, get work experience related to your degree, improve your employability, learn new skills, meet new people, do some training or just have fun.
