Each project is run by a minimum of two Project leaders, who receive training, resources and support from the team. Log in to the Volunteering database and visit our student-led projects page to find out more about the current projects available and how to get involved, as well as information on setting up your own student-led project and applying for funding through the Santander Do Good fund.

Throughout the year the team run a number of events and one off volunteer opportunities. As well as the Do Good, Feel Good Fair in October, we visit campuses with our Do Good, Feel Good pop up stands, providing the opportunity to find out more about how to get involved with volunteering and boost your wellbeing.
