5 ways to get involved in your community

Student gardening - Liverpool Guild

We know lots of our students do incredible things in and around Liverpool. If you’re interested in getting more involved in your local area, you might like to try one of these five ways to get involved in your community.

If you have any more ideas about how other students can get involved in the community or you want to share something you already do in your area, let us know on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram (@LivUni) or TikTok (@liverpooluni) #TeamLivUni.

  1. Volunteer

The Guild have hundreds of great volunteering opportunities available throughout the year you can get involved in.

On their site right now, they have opportunities to help identify animals in camera traps, coach children’s football and create Tik Toks to support women refugees, asylum seekers and survivors of trafficking.

Eurovision 2023 are also looking for volunteers to help scan tickets, greet visitors and welcome artists backstage.

  1. Be a good neighbour – bins and noise

Although students are valuable Liverpool residents, to help make sure everyone’s needs in the community are met, we all need to think about noise levels and help keep our amazing city tidy.

Have a think about:

  • How late is reasonable? Make sure you’re not disturbing your neighbour’s sleep.
  • Be aware of noise levels when walking through neighbourhoods after a party or a night out
  • Keep your property clean and don’t dump rubbish. Check when your bin collection day

Remember that as a student you need to adhere to our Policy on Student Conduct and Discipline.

  1. Litter pick

As well as meeting new people and increasing your daily steps, litter picking can give you a great sense of achievement. You can find a litter pick near you via the Wellbeing Liverpool website.
