Officer Cricle
Faizan Sajid

Activities Officer

"Volunteering as a Student can create a massive impact in your local community and provides an opportunity for you to make changes to the issues you care about."

Volunteer befrienders pledge to visit a socially isolated older neighbour who lives near them for one hour per week for a cuppa and a chat. Each befriender and older neighbour receive regular support to ensure they’re benefitting from the project.

There are also regular social clubs starting across Sheffield. Each group activity is different… and they’re certainly not boring. From shaking-up Bond-style mocktails, performing street-dance routines, designing Christmas cards, making bird boxes, chocolate tasting sessions and jiving to Bollywood-inspired music… members are exploring new horizons and getting out of their comfort zone each week.

To find out more information about this role and similar opportunities, book an informal chat appointment with a member of the Volunteering team.
