As a community volunteer, you are helping a wide range of different causes within the local community. This means that all the work you do as part of your role can be logged as volunteering hours and skills through ARU Students' Union Volunteer Centre. But which hours can you log?
Meetings or training conducted by the Students’ Union
Development planning and preparation work
Supervisory activities (an event where you are coordinating others, not participating in)
Any training or coaching delivered by yourself
Communication with your organisation
Travel in which you are a volunteer driver
Performing your volunteering role
Travel time to and from your role
Events or activities which you are participating in but not coordinating e.g. sports fixtures, activity sessions etc.
Generally, if you are doing a task for free and for the benefit of others, this is volunteering!
