Team London has grown its database to 58,535 students.

We continue to work with London Student Volunteering Network (LSVN) which coordinates volunteering across the Universities in London.

From September-November 2015 we will run a further marketing campaign to raise awareness of volunteering as a route to work. 

The campaign will coincide with LSVN's London Student Volunteering Fortnight (24 Oct - 7 Nov 2015) which we are supporting.  This fortnight will commence this year with student volunteers supporting our Speed Networking event for young people.

We continue to maintain our strong relationship with Student Hubs and will host a student volunteering boot-camp as part of National Student Volunteering Week (22-28 Feb 2016).
