We support all Cardiff Met students by offering projects to get involved with in our growing city. With our projects, we aim to increase awareness of local community issues, with you working alongside having a positive impact. It’s a real chance to meet new and likeminded people and to work alongside them on these projects. There is always something to get involved with in, whether short-term or long-term, so please call in to the SU offices in Llandaff or Cyncoed to find out more.

Student action for refugees (STAR)

 We are looking for students to volunteer at weekly sessions at Oasis Cardiff which  supports refugees and asylum seekers living in Cardiff. The aim of the sessions are to help the refugees integrate into British society and to run an informal and basic English conversation club for those at the centre who wish to improve their English. The project would work as part of the national STAR (Student Action for Refugees) network of student groups working to improve the lives of refugees living in the U.K.

The project runs every Tuesday in term time from 18:00-20:00 at Oasis Cardiff.

This would be a great opportunity for aspiring teachers, those with a particular interest in supporting refugees and the local community or anyone wanting to develop their skills and employability.

Cardiff Met’s brand new community gardens project needs you!

If you’re interested in gardening, getting involved in sustainable and environmental projects, or just want an excuse to meet new people and spend some time outside, then the Cardiff Met Community Garden might just be the thing for you.

The community gardens project is open to all staff and students and will see existing ‘plantable’ on-campus areas transformed into productive gardens. The team leading the project is looking for people to help nurture both a physic garden and a vegetable garden, and develop new and exciting projects based on the garden and its products.

The project is looking for student reps to join the tram managing the garden as well as general volunteers. To find out more about the project, or to join the mailing list, please contact Jen Evans on jmevans@cardiffmet.ac.uk. You can also follow the project on Twitter: @CMetGardens
