Volunteer Award Nominations are Now Closed!

 

Each year the Student Volunteer Team here at the Students' Union places around 4,000 University of Nottingham students into a wide variety of volunteering roles within our community.  These students willingly give up their free time to get involved in a wide range of activities such as leading their own student-led project, supporting a local or national organisation, or just taking part in a one day event. 

To thank our students and community partners for the hard work and contributions they make, we are hosting a Student Volunteer Awards evening on Thursday 16 May.  In order to recognise our student’s efforts we will be presenting a variety of awards on the night to celebrate their achievements and contributions.
