Check out Discovery’s Week of Work programme to get involved in short taste of volunteering in the community. Whether you are interested in working with older people, younger people or are better with a paint brush or shears we’ve got something for everyone! For more information or to sign yourself up get in touch with discovery@swansea.ac.uk or pop into the office!

Interested in learning new skills and having fun whilst improving your CV? The Supported Volunteering Scheme pairs students with volunteers with learning disabilities, Autism Spectrum Conditions and/or mental health issues to support them in various tasks in the organisation.

Volunteers need to commit to a weekly slot in term time in order for everyone involved to get the best out of it. Email Kirsty on k.rowles@swansea.ac.uk  by 10th February for an application form!

Applications are now open for Swansea Siavonga Partnership Summer programme trip to Siavonga in Zambia. Discovery Student Volunteering Swansea  has been working with the Siavonga Nutrition Group, The University of Zambia, schools and women’s groups in Siavonga for 8 years. We have strong relationships and work closely with the community in Siavonga to design a month of volunteering that responds to their expressed needs.

A small group of students spend most of July in Zambia, supported by Discovery staff. They design workshops on topics that the people in Siavonga have asked us to address and work closely with volunteers from Siavonga Nutrition group, students from the University of Zambia to deliver them to schools and women’s groups.

This is an amazing opportunity to be part of a sustainable, locally lead development project. You are well supported but are expected to take a full role in planning and delivering workshops.

Previous students have said;

‘’[this project gives you] freedom to choose your project, it gives responsibility and meaning to volunteering more than any other set volunteering project’’

‘’Every minute felt like it had purpose and meaning’’

‘’Overall, this was an amazing and character building experience that took me out of my comfort zone but was hugely rewarding. I would do it again in a heartbeat.’’

The total cost of the tip is £1600 but eligible first and second year students, Masters and PHD students who will be continuing their study in Swansea in Autumn 2018 can usually get a £600 bursary to help with this.

To apply, or for more information, email discovery@swansea.ac.uk or pop in to our office in Fulton House for a chat.

Finally, please have a look at our latest blog post – http://discoverysvs.org/a-new-year-in-discovery/
