Fancy volunteering but don't have the time? Or perhaps you're not sure where to start?

Give It a Go provides you with an easy way to make a positive difference in your local community, alongside your studies and other commitments.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Winchester Hub are going online with our volunteering!

Winchester Hub are following goverment guidance and staying at home. As a result, Give It A Go is adapting to bring you online volunteering opportunities! Sign up to our Newsletter here to keep up to date with one-off volunteering online events you can get involved in - we have listed some ideas below!

Do a Random Act of Kindness

We want to get people volunteering no matter where they are! And we are hoping to make a community to spread the word and celebrate your good deeds! Take a photo of yourself doing one of these activities, tag Winchester Hub and #RemoteGIAG so we can see what you are up to (Sign up to our GIAG newsletter to keep up to date as the list grows!)

  • Do a food shop for someone in self-isolation: whilst you do yours - only go shopping when necessary!
  • Checkin with a high risk individual: Do you know someone in your neighbourhood who is high risk? Why not knock on their door and post a card to them asking how they are doing?
  • Create a Carepackage for a high risk individual: Things you might include is a book you think they would like, a boardgame or cards you want to have a second home, some food (snacks, pasta), candles, DVDs and a letter from you saying good luck!
  • Sign a petition: Check out Change.org
  • Do a different social action and tag us in it to show us what you did (please see government guidance here to ensure your social action is being done safely)

Knitting Baby Booties for Premature Hospital Babies

Whilst you are indoors, how about trying your hand at knitting? Our Woolly Matters co-ordinator has made a video to help get you started on small boots for premature babies at Winchester Hospital - Check it out here!

Afraid you won't be able to join in? We provide ongoing support for students who want to get involved, so if you have particular accessibility needs, including educational needs, please do get in touch with us here at Winchester Hub - email hello@winchesterhub.org and let us know how we can make sure an event is accessible to you.
