How do I become a volunteer?


Alongside the Passport to Learning we have introduced the Passport to Volunteering, which works in much the same way.  Our CU Volunteers record evidence of the time spent volunteering and are recognised and celebrated in the same way as our CU Learners through the presentation of CU Awards and Certificates.
