Our community and volunteering projects work to improve community cohesion and build relations between students and the wider community in which they live.
As a civic university, community is at the heart of what we do. Working with local people and community organisations is a priority for us to make the city the best place it can be.
The Sustainability Service co-develop and co-deliver community-beneficial projects that improve the quality of life for all residents, whilst helping to create mutual understanding and respect between both the University and local communities.
To register your interest as a student fill in our volunteering form, letting us know which projects you are interested in getting involved in. By volunteering with us you will meet and work with other students and other local residents committed to making positive changes to our local communities for the benefit of all.

Community Projects Group
Our Community Projects Group brings together a wide group of community representatives who are interested in delivering new projects to improve the quality of life for all residents.
Chaired by Student Exec officers from Leeds Beckett and Leeds University students unions, the group meets monthly to discuss ideas for projects that could be co-developed and co-delivered by members of the community, students, University of Leeds and LUU. Each of the four project categories listed above has a corresponding working group which also meet regularly.
To join the Community Projects Group or one of the individual working groups, please contact Lucy Ram.
