You can log your hours to work towards Volunteering Awards. You should only log hours spent volunteering in the community with organisations listed on our website. The organisation will receive a notification asking them to verify the hours you spent volunteering with them.

Logging your hours will earn you volunteering awards! Your awards and volunteering transcript can be found on your account / profile and can be shared on your LinkedIn, used to enhance your CV and will celebrate all of the great work you’ve done in the community.

A special Volunteer of the Year award will go to the person who has logged the most hours for the voluntary work they did in that academic year.

Hours logged will count between the 1st of August to the 31st of July and will not roll over for the following year.

We reimburse reasonable travel expenses to and from your volunteering placement. You need to complete a PV and return it to Liverpool Guild of Students along with all original receipts. Find out more by reading our Expenses Policy.

The organisation you volunteer with may have an Expenses policy of their own, please check this in your training, but be sure not to claim your expenses back from both the guild and the partner organisation
