GIAGs are designed to be one-off opportunities for students to spend a day volunteering as a group. These activities are a great way for students to try out volunteering with a local voluntary organisation. After the volunteering day, we encourage the students who took part to consider volunteering more of their time with the organisation.

The Sheffield Volunteer Standard is a locally developed quality mark giving independent recognition that an organisation manages a structured volunteering programme, based on consistent policies where volunteers receive a high quality, positive volunteering experience. This Standard will raise the quality and profile of volunteering locally and help volunteers identify organisations that will provide them with safe and rewarding volunteering roles.
