NEW Volunteering GuidanceVolunteering

The University is committed to its civic responsibility by taking an active role in the community. As part of this commitment, the University, where possible, would like to support those staff wishing to participate in voluntary activities, to enhance the wellbeing and development of all staff.

The University will give consideration to releasing a member of staff during work time, to take a reasonable amount of time off to participate in voluntary activities. This may include using flexible working arrangements, annual leave, or unpaid leave.

New guidance on volunteering is now available to provide information and support, for both staff and managers, on how best to implement and manage working arrangements and relationships to accommodate voluntary activities.
