Today is University Mental Health and Wellbeing Day, the perfect opportunity to introduce here on the blog one of our new one-off project, which proved very successful in improving students’ wellbeing: Dogs Trust Kenilworth. Jenny, who organises this project, is telling us more about one of their sessions.
We are very happy to look back to 2015-16. It has been a year full of fantastic volunteers, meaningful projects, discoveries, friendships, learning… With more than 2500 members, 10,100 volunteered hours over 45 projects, University of Warwick students have had a large impact on the communities around campus.
Thank you to all the students and staff who have volunteered this year, and thank you to all our partners who help making student volunteering possible.
Did you know that today is Mental Health and Wellbeing day? And that volunteering can help?
This week’s Project Spotlight focuses on a one-off community project in Coventry in association with RNIB Three Spires. The project involved Fence Painting of the school’s main fence after it suffered a major fire in October 2015.
It is tradition: a new year brings a new start! Funny how it can give us that little push and encourage us to improve ourselves. Maybe you too, decided to make some resolutions for 2016. And maybe you need a little help keeping them. Well, we’ve got the answer: volunteering.
