Volunteering Fair

Our annual Volunteering Fair will take place on Thursday 17th October 2019 between 12 noon and 3pm at our Kedleston Road site.

The Volunteering Fair is open to students, staff and the public, interested in volunteering and finding an opportunity. This is a fantastic opportunity to meet local and national charities and find out how you can get involved in the community while gaining valuable experience for your CV and having fun!
