We're currently working with six external organisations whose work impacts on communities local to Aston University and the Birmingham area in general.
Education – e.g. Volunteering Reading Help, STEM Ambassadors, Safeside
Disabililty - e.g. Dyslexia Association Birmingham
Social inclusion - e.g. SIFA Fireside
Environment – e.g. Community Service Volunteers (CSV)
Please take a look at the Ongoing Opportunities section for further details.
These opportunities have all been assessed as meeting the required standards set out in the Volunteering Policy and Volunteering Charter. At present, we can only support these six organisations and their activities, although our partnership with CSV does enable volunteering at a variety of locations. These existing supported activities provide a range of volunteering opportunities which lend themselves to a variety of abilities and interests, whilst ensuring that any potential risks to staff are minimised.
