Healthwatch Lancashire engages with students at UCLan Volunteering Fair
The Centre for Volunteering and Community Leadership hosted the UCLan Volunteering Fair 2015 this week. The event was held on the 26th of February in Foster Building at the main campus in Preston, and was an opportunity for students to come along and find out more about volunteering at Healthwatch Lancashire.
The Healthwatch Lancashire team spoke to students about volunteering, the benefits of volunteering and available volunteering opportunities.
Over 70% of employers prefer their employees to have some sort of voluntary work experience, this was a chance for UCLan students to try and secure voluntary work with Healthwatch Lancashire in order to gain valuable work experience, expand their professional and social network, develop existing skills and gain new skills.
