Volunteering guidelines

Oxford Brookes University seeks to play a leading role in the socio-economic and cultural development of the communities that it serves. As part of its commitment to community engagement the University has introduced a staff volunteering policy. The policy is also intended to support, encourage and develop employees by facilitating their involvement in a wide range of local community organisations.

The purpose of these guidelines is to provide a framework within which employees and management can agree volunteering opportunities. The guidelines must be read in conjunction with the staff volunteering policy.

See also the volunteering ideas on the Careers Centre webpages which illustrate different types of voluntary groups and current opportunities.  You might want to join Brookes Volunteering and Careers and Employment Centre Volunteering Facebook pages for the most up-to-date information on the volunteering opportunities and events taking place at the University and in Oxfordshire.
