UCLU Volunteering Fair will allow students to talk to about 50 different community projects, charities and NGOs. The event, hosted in the South Cloisters, is designed to offer a wide range of volunteering opportunities, ensuring there is something of interest to everyone.

Rachel Er (UCLU Volunteering Society) said of last year's event: "The volunteering fair was an amazing avenue for me to find the right organisation to volunteer with, especially when I first arrived at UCL and was unfamiliar with the charitable organisations in the UK. Being able to speak to so many different organisations has allowed me to explore my interests and clarify my doubts on what volunteering with them involved. I ultimately decided on volunteering with London Nightline and then got involved with the Volunteering Society."

There were four UCLU Volunteering Fairs last year, where attendees included the British Red Cross, Oxfam, Age UK and London Wildlife Trust.
