Volunteering and outreach

Outreach provides capacity building and awareness raising activities to areas of the community who might not otherwise have knowledge or access to University.

Volunteering is any activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment or community. Opportunities include practical and skills-based volunteering, as well as remote and one-off volunteering opportunities.

Examples of the types of opportunities available include:
