Volunteering Opportunities

The WLV Union has a number of opportunities available for you to volunteer with an outside organisation. All of our opportunities are assessed to make sure they are of quality and enhance your student experience. We work in partnership with local organisations to offer some great opportunities fo community engagement.


BestMates are otherwise known as Freshers Volunteers, they help new students during Welcome Week at the beginning of each academic year. Any returning student can apply to be a BestMate and we then select the ideal candidates to represent the Union and the University and welcome the new intake of University of Wolverhampton undergraduates.
