For Volunteer Providers
Welcome from the volunteering and mentoring team!
The Volunteering and Mentoring Team at the University of Chester aim to help students make the most of their time whilst studying through volunteer opportunities within the University and in the wider community.
By registering on this website, students can find volunteer opportunities, log their volunteer hours, track their progress and apply for our University of Chester Volunteering (UCV) awards.
Registering as a provider.
We welcome any charity or other not for profit organisation who has volunteer opportunities that would be available to our students to set up an account with us. We have campuses in Chester and University Centres in both Warrington and Shrewsbury for any in person activities, and also have a dedicated page for any activities that could be completed from home.
By registering with us, you will be able to advertise your activities directly to students, and also be added to our mailing list to receive notification of any events or campaigns that we are running.
Once you have completed the provider registration we will review this and get in touch if we have any questions. Once we have activiated your account you will then be able to add volunteer activities (roles) for students to apply to directly.
Before registering we would recommend reading our Terms and Conditions. If you have any questions regarding this please do get in touch.
Please note that we are unable to advertise opportunities with profit-making organisations or international volunteer opportunities.
Although we recognise that some of your face to face opportunities have been suspended, or are just starting to resume, we are still encouraging our students to volunteer if they can. We have added information to our site to signpost students to virtual or remote volunteering which can be done from home. We also want to let them know how they can support the local community if it is safe for them to do so. If you have a virtual/ remote opportunity you would like added to our volunteering from home page please contact us.
We have also added a ‘Covid-19/Social Distancing Filter’ to the area where you add new activities and would encourage you to utilise this if you have any remote opportunities to upload that our students can support you with. We would also suggest that you update the ‘acknowledgement email’ on the activities you already have active on your provider account to explain your current situation.
Please view our Frequently Asked Questions page for further information. If you still have questions or would like to speak to a member of the team regarding your opportunities please contact us.
If you are using this system for the first time please view our ‘How To’ guide with instructions to register as a Provider.
We look forward to working with you!
