Volunteering - student working with school children

A student volunteer working with school children.

Hundreds of our students sign up for the Students’ Union’s vTeam every year and get involved in volunteering projects on campus and in the community.

The range of projects our students contribute to include sessions in local schools covering science, maths, sport and art.

Essex Law Clinic

Our School of Law is particularly active within the voluntary sector. At our Essex Law Clinic law students, under the supervision of local solicitors, offer free initial legal advice to members of the public, students and staff. Our Essex Street Law project is one of the first of its kind in the UK and is designed to increase social awareness of legal issues in local schools.
