Volunteering Hours Log
We think it's really important that students receive recognition for the volunteering they do – whether that's for the Student Union or in the community for a local charity – so we've set up SurreyVolunteering.com for you to log the amount of time you've spent helping others.

What counts as volunteering?
Volunteering roles are split broadly into anything internal i.e. for the Union and anything external. Here are examples of Union roles that will count towards your Volunteering Award:
Part time Zone member
Sport Relief team
Sports Club committee member
Society committee member
*Internal roles will be verified by a relevant member of Union staff
Here are some examples of external volunteering opportunities that would count towards your Award:
Volunteering for a charity or not for profit organisation
Volunteering abroad for a charity or not for profit organisation
Mentoring/ unpaid tutoring
*External roles will be verified by your line manager at the organisation you volunteer at
There are some exclusions:
any volunteering that is a compulsory part of your degree would not count towards a Volunteering Award because we feel that volunteering should never be 'compulsory'. However if you remain volunteering at an organisation past the minimum requirements for your degree, we would be able to count these extra hours towards an Award.
Society and Sports Club committee members – weekly training, matches, or socials you attend do not count as volunteering – it must be time you spend on club/society administration, planning, running events
