Make a Difference to Homeless Week - get involved

Make a Difference to Homeless Week - get involved

Posted by nm365 at Nov 27, 2019 03:17 PM |

Monday 2 to Friday 6 December is our third Make A Difference Week, this time dedicated to supporting the homeless.

There are still one off opportunities which you can get involved with:

Monday 2 December: 'Give Leicester' Volunteer training session
Give Leicester is a new initiative to enable people who want to help rough sleepers in the city to give money to support a local night shelter using new donation points that have been set up across Leicester. Enthusiastic volunteers are needed to help with promoting the donation points. Sign up to attend the training session through MyCareers.

Tuesday 3 December: Supermarket bag packing
The Y youth homelessness charity needs super friendly and engaging volunteers to help shoppers at Asda in Oadby to pack their groceries in exchange for small donations. No previous experience is needed, you just need to be confident and smiley to meet and greet shoppers in a polite manner. There are two shifts that you can choose from, 10.00am-1.00pm or 1.00pm-4.00pm. Sign up through MyCareers.

Thursday 5 December: Shoebox challenge donations and wrappers
Give a gift to a homeless young person by filling a shoe box with your friends for the youth homelessness charity, The Y by filling a shoe box with essentials.

Or, if you enjoy wrapping presents, we need enthusiastic volunteers to wrap donated shoeboxes on Thursday 5 December from 1.00pm-2.30pm and from 2.30pm-4.00pm in the SU Square. If you are interested and available, please email volunteer@le.ac.uk with your preferred shift.

For more information see our Make A Difference Week webpage or email volunteer@le.ac.uk

Changes to Student Services Centre opening hours

Changes to Student Services Centre opening hours

Posted by nm365 at Nov 25, 2019 03:45 PM |

The opening hours of the Student Services Centre are now 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday.

Over the course of the last year, we have monitored the number of students using the services of the Student Services Centre before 9am and after 5pm and found it to be very low. The change in opening hours will enable the Student Services Centre team to be fully staffed at the busiest times of the day, during the morning, when the numbers of students visiting the Centre is at its highest.

Some appointments services will continue to offer appointments in the evenings and students with appointments after 5pm will be informed where to wait for their appointment when the Student Services Centre desk in the Charles Wilson Building foyer is closed.

The Student Services Centre is a central point for information and advice for all students. If you need help with any practical matters, the Centre will always be happy to help you.
