Discovery SVS is a Swansea University student led charity that manages a wide range of volunteering projects. 

Volunteering with Discovery is a great way to make new friends, learn new skills & make a difference to the local community. Volunteering looks fab on your CV and can improve your wellbeing but most of all it can be fun! And any Swansea University student or staff member can volunteer with us. 

Our projects aim to enrich the lives of disadvantaged people across Swansea and work with different community members. We have a wide range of projects and one off volunteering opportunities you can volunteer on, both in person and remotely, and some that you can participate in no matter where you are in the world. You can volunteer with children, young people, older adults, refugees & asylum seekers, disabled adults, on mental health projects and on practical projects. 

Please note that all of our projects are subject to COVID regulations and might change as the regulations change. 

DISCOVERY aims to:

  • Enrich the lives of people in Swansea in order to fulfil their potential as empowered individuals and as members of groups and communities.
  • Offer new experiences and opportunities through a broad range of student-led activities in the community leading to increased mutual understanding and equality.
  • Actively support students to be aware of their personal development and the impact on themselves and the lives of others through their involvement in community-based activities.

All our volunteers need to attend mandatory ‘Start Here’ training & complete an Enhanced DBS check with us before volunteering.  Volunteers can also attend additional training.
