Volunteer Opportunities


The majority of DMU Local volunteering opportunities are currently paused due to the pandemic, however we do have a number of remote opportunities available, that you can get involved with wherever you are currently living (even if you are not based in Leicester).

To ensure that you are up to date with our latest volunteering opportunities, please sign up to our weekly volunteering newsletter via our website, and check this page regularly. Any current opportunities will be listed below.

 Reminder: Log Your Hours

We are coming to the end of another academic year and, despite some challenges, many of you have gone out of your way to support vulnerable community groups. Thank you and congratulations!

To make sure this is recognised, we urge you to please make sure we have a record of the hours you have committed by completing this volunteering log. Completing this will make sure that any hours you have clocked up will appear on your HEAR when you graduate, and can be used as an extra tool when exploring potential employers.

The deadline to log your hours by is Monday 26th April, so don’t delay in doing this.
