We help universities engage with the public

Vinspired students

Student volunteering is a tried and tested way in which universities can develop and support their public engagement activities.

The NCCPE vinspired students programme has been funded by v, the national young volunteers service, to provide compelling evidence of the impact of volunteering on students, communities and institutions, and demonstrate the unique contribution that universities can make through the strategic management of volunteering.

Bursting the Bubble: Students, Volunteering and the Community

Bursting the Bubble, published in November 2010, explores the motivations for, routes into, and perceived impacts of volunteering on students, universities and the wider community. Find out more about Bursting the Bubble, and download the report at the bottom of this page.


Through the learning from our Pilot Projects, National Campaigns and our research into the volunteering activities in universities we have produced a range of resources to help and inspire you.
