Do you want to give back to the local community?

Do you want to improve your skills?

Are you short of time for regular volunteering?

Why not try volunteering at our One-off Wednesdays?!


This year the Inspiring Projects team are launching a brand new way of volunteering for UCLan SU students. We know you don’t all have the time to commit to a regular volunteering opportunity so One-off Wednesdays are for you to come along and volunteer as little as 30 mins of your time or as much as a whole afternoon!

Each Wednesday afternoon the volunteering will run from 12.30pm until approx. 4.00pm (although the end time will depend on the activity), and will be on a different topic or theme. You don’t need to attend all the volunteering sessions, just pick and choose the ones you like the sound of, or the ones you have time for.

We advise you to sign up as some of the opportunities will have maximum numbers, but this isn’t essential and for most of them you’ll simply be able to turn up and make a big difference in a small amount of time!

Each week you’ll be helping a different area of our local community, learning different skills, and getting a wide range of experience to add to your CV – plus you can use the time you volunteer towards the Livesey Award.

You can sign up for any live upcoming One-off Wednesday activities NOW here, but keep an eye out as new events get added in the up-coming weeks.

One-off Wednesdays will return on Wed 24th January 2018 - keep an eye out for the schedule of activities which will be on here soon.

Details of these activities are to be confirmed, so please email for more details.

All volunteers will be given a FREE t-shirt to wear when you take part in our activities so keep your eyes peeled for the opportunities you want to help with.

We will also be launching this year’s TIPs (The Inspire Programme sessions) very soon, these free training sessions are open to anyone and will be bookable via the website. Please come back soon to see the schedule of useful, informative sessions we have available this year on themes such as communication, leadership and campaigning.

If you need any more information on any of these activities or sessions please email
