2021/22 Objectives

  1. Get all of our projects running again this year. 

  2. Facilitate opportunities to engage both the student and local Exeter community. 

  3. To be inclusive by creating a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

How to Volunteer With Us!

2.  Register your interest in a project(s) here: https://www.exeterguild.org/activities/community-volunteering/projects/

3. First Steps Training - All volunteers must go through this to start volunteering with us. This covers safeguarding to protect both yourself and the vulnerable people we come in contact with. First Steps Training takes place online and can be completed at your own pace. Following this, it is necessary you pass the quiz in order to start volunteering. 


Note: If you have previously attended a First Steps Training, you will need to do it again online. 

4. DBS - Some of our projects require a DBS, these are: smART Club, Music Makers, Summer Adventures, Mentoring for Success, Global Touch, Teddy Bear Hospital and Action After Stroke. For those not listed, you can begin volunteering after first steps training is completed.
