Volunteering at LJMU


Want to make a difference?

By giving some of your time and energy to volunteering you’ll be able to make a positive impact in your local community, help people in need and get involved in worthwhile causes that matter to you. In doing so, you’ll build your self-confidence, develop a sense of purpose and achieve your personal and professional goals. 

LJMU and Liverpool Students’ Union will support you in finding exciting, worthwhile and career-enhancing voluntary work with a range of organisations and in a wide variety of roles, from helping pupils with their reading in schools to working on environmental projects.

80 percent of employers are more likely to hire an applicant with volunteering experience. (Based on a study recently conducted by Oxfam.)
