Top tips for getting started in volunteering

  • Be realistic: if you’ve never done any volunteer work before or you aren’t sure how much time you can commit to it or if you’ll like it or not, try a one-off event
  • Ask questions: talk to the organisation’s representative and take their contact details so you can get in touch again if you have further questions
  • Find out more: research the organisation and ask if you can speak to someone who already volunteers in the same organisation – preferably a student so you can find out how they make it work for them

DBS checks

LJMU will undertake DBS clearance without cost to volunteers. For further information about DBS checks please email the Student Futures Employer Engagement Team.
