Why Volunteering is Easy at Essex

Everyone comes to uni to get a degree - that part is a given. But you might find yourself wanting to fill your time with something extra - that's where the SU's vTeam comes in.

There are a huge variety of projects you can get involved with. Do you like working with children? Then join one of our regular projects at school! Want to help refugees in the local community? Then Refugee Teaching Programme is the one. Do you like animals? Well, we have a treat or two for you. Every week we visit Colchester Cat Rescue and we work with a few local farms too, be ready to get stuck in. We also offer quick short term opportunities on campus where you can help out with the SU events

Volunteering helps us give back to the local community, but it also sets you apart from the competition when you finish at Essex.

You can find a list of all of the projects we run right here.
