Volunteering and Social Justice Fair

The University will be hosting its annual Volunteering and Social Justice Fair on Tuesday 16 October in Academy 1 at Manchester Students’ Union.

The Fair is a great chance for students to meet a diverse range of charities and not-for-profit organisations and talk to them face-to-face to find volunteering opportunities to get involved with during their time at university.

Up to 100 different volunteering organisations will be at the Fair from a wide range of sectors including cultural, environmental, health, sport and social inclusion, both from the wider community and within the University and Students’ Union. Each organisation provides a different way for students to get involved in the Manchester community, meet a variety of new people and help tackle important issues within the local and global community.

Students will also be able to find out about the Social Justice Challenge, the Ethical Grand Challenge for second year undergraduates, as well as the other Ethical Grand Challenges and Step Up and Leadership roles, all supporting students to achieve the Stellify Award.

The University’s Social Justice Photography Competition will also be launched on the day.

Volunteering and Social Justice Fair

On Tuesday 17 October, almost 1,500 students attended our annual Volunteering and Social Justice Fair.

The Fair aims to inspire students to take action in their communities in the UK and beyond and give students the chance to talk to over 100 diverse charities and not-for-profit organisations about volunteering opportunities.

All the different elements of the Manchester Leadership Award were brought together for students to explore at the Fair, in one lively space.

The new Social Justice Challenge, our Ethical Grand Challenge for 2nd year Undergraduate Students, and a key part of the Manchester Leadership Award, was also launched at the Fair.
