What is volunteering?

Keele SU defines volunteering as any activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment, or individuals other than yourself, or community groups.

This can include volunteering in a set role with a registered charity or volunteering informally carrying out roles such fundraising or community social action. Central to this definition is the fact that volunteering must be a choice freely made by you.  

If you are not sure if your activities count towards the Keele SU Volunteering Awards, please get in touch with a member of the department, we are more than happy to help!
