Active Student Volunteering Service is delighted to launch the Santander Volunteering and Community Engagement Awards 2016. Seven awards worth £1,000 each, funded by Santander Universities, to recognise outstanding contributions in the fields of volunteering and community engagement undertaken by current University of Brighton students during the academic year 2015-16.

Nominations are sought from non-profit organisations, charities, CICs or public sector organisations in which University of Brighton students are/have been volunteering or completed a community based placement during this academic year.

This includes:

  • Students who have volunteered within the local community
  • Students who have volunteered within the University, including Student Union Clubs and Societies
  • Students who have undertaken a community-based placement as part of their degree.

Please note: nominations can only be made by the organisation where the student’s volunteering or placement is/was based and students cannot nominate themselves for an award. Before nominating a student, please ensure you have carefully read the full Guidance notes on the website listed below.

Closing date: midnight on Monday 18 April 2016.

Full details including the Nomination form and Guidance notes are listed on the Active Student Volunteering Service website:
