Make a difference (M.A.D) - volunteering days and projects

Do you have an opportunity that students can lead? A one day project that you need help with which will give students the opportunity to develop new skills and experiences? If the answer is yes, a M.A.D day or project could be perfect the perfect solution.

M.A.D days are one day volunteering projects which encourage volunteers to work on a short project with maximum impact. This is a great way to provide volunteers with an insight into your organisation. Previous activities include a garden/room makeover, help with a coffee morning/fete or help with a sport day.

M.A.D projects are longer-term activities that look to lead and develop a volunteering activity/project on behalf of an organisation. Previous M.A.D projects have included organising fundraising/awareness raising campaigns, re-designing branding and marketing materials and producing short DVD/promotional films.

Working with either an individual or group of volunteers, the organisation and Volun-tees would provide advice and support to ensure that project aims were met.

Volun-tees staff are happy to visit your organisation to discuss in more detail. You can submit an expression of interest for M.A.D days and projects on the following proposal forms.
