Case Studies



Student volunteers provide much needed support to homeless and vulnerable people in Nottingham. They also raise awareness about homelessness and educate volunteers so that they can provide the best support and information to those who need it. 

Two soup runs occur every week during the year on Tuesday and Sunday evenings. Food and hot drinks are handed out in the city centre along with support, information and essentials such as clothes, sleeping bags and toiletries.

Volunteers from across the Nottingham and Derby campuses are trained to perform emergency resuscitation and lifesaving first aid techniques. They use these skills while responding to high priority 999 calls across the East Midlands.

By acting as an additional resource to the ambulance service, volunteers reduce the time members of the public have to wait for emergency intervention when every minute counts. Responders have totalled over 4,000 hours of voluntary service since 2014 and attended over 1,000 jobs.

first aid




A student-led volunteer project that provides free routine veterinary care to the homeless and vulnerably-housed community of Nottingham.

Volunteers provide vaccinations, flea treatment, worming, microchipping and free basic healthcare to a number of animals in the community from big dogs to ferrets and cats. Clinics run twice a month with fourth and fifth year veterinary students running the consults. Volunteers also do a lot of fundraising work in order to keep the clinics running, which includes cake sales, fun events and donation events.
