Want to make a difference in the world and get involved in campaigns, volunteering or politics? Our Social Action Day is the event for you!
Norwich is a city thriving with volunteering opportunities and a social conscience. We're hosting a whole day of activities to give you the chance to get involved with campaigns, volunteering and politics on campus, in Norwich and across the country. Come find out what’s on offer in the union and hear from national and local organisations you could get involved with!
