This is Action, the volunteering section!

Action is a lovely section really, it's your opportunity to help benefit the local and wider community. Our wonderful volunteers do amazing things for people all around and are always well spoken of around the Loughborough area don't you know!

There are eight areas of Action to get involved in:
Community Outreach
Young Persons
A-Teams (Hall-led projects)
D-Teams (Department-led projects)

We specialise in weekly projects for the local community and make Loughborough an even better place to be!

With over 50 individual projects for you to get involved in, you'll never run out of opportunities to earn good karma.

Contact your hall Action Rep or come into the Action office in the Student Union.

Yes we log hours and we have a reward system for 10, 25, 50, 100 and 150 hours!

Of course, you can either email the Action Chair or the project leaders of direct projects to get involved, or alternatively, come along to your department projects!

You can run to be either one of our Hall representatives or Department Student Involvement Officers (SIO's) through the respective areas, or you can apply to be a Project Leader directly. If you really want to be involved, committee applications for next year will open after Easter.
