Leeds Trinity University's volunteering is a significant part of what's on offer for students. Our opportunities are built from established relationships with local, regional and national organisations. It's a chance to gain experience in your area of work in a fun and rewarding way.

Our status as an vinspired award validator means that you're eligible to have your commitment to volunteering recognised by the UK's leading youth volunteering charity. Vinspired is an independent charity dedicated to helping young people volunteer in ways that matter to them.
Volunteering made me realise that giving up my time to help others and making a positive difference to someone's day, is very rewarding. It was a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills and meet new people.
