We are running Student Volunteering Week 2021 from 8-12th February. Not only are we celebrating our student and staff volunteers, we are raising money for two amazing charities that have been chosen by our Student Execs:
1. Falcon support services - https://www.falconsupportservices.org.uk/ they help support the homeless by providing not only shelter but skills when searching for jobs
2. SAUK - https://www.sauk.org.uk/ the scoliosis association (very close to my heart and it means the world the execs agreed on this). They do research into the condition and support those with scoliosis.
I am the Volunteering and Mentoring Coordinator at De Montfort SU and there are different departments who are part of the planning of this week including: Mentoring For All, Healthy DMU, DMU Local, DMU Sport and DSU Activities Team.
The money will be split between the two charities above. We know that as a result of the pandemic, more and more people will be accessing support as a result of job loss and homelessness.
