With over 20 charities and around 200 students in attendance, it was a lively and exciting afternoon, which provided a host of students with the chance to speak directly with charity representatives and explore opportunities to volunteer alongside their studies.
Charities in attendance came in all shapes and sizes. Alongside local concerns such as Hackney Pirates and Team Westminster, several national and international charities were also represented, including
- British Red Cross
- The Children’s Society
- Intercultural Youth Exchange.
By volunteering a few hours each week, students were invited to develop their skills and interests in a host of different areas. Opportunities ranged from local education, counselling and charity communications to national and international placements and advocacy addressing development, gender, disability and refugee support.
