We partner with Universities

We work closely with Manchester University and Manchester Metropolitan University to engage more volunteers.

We also take on and arrange for students who need work placements to finish course work and meet requirements for voluntary work, event management, health and social care, media and PR and project management. 

Students should feel free to apply for administrative roles of any kind, and we are open to ideas and suggestions you may have about volunteering.
