Discovery Student Volunteering Service has been running at Swansea Uni for 51 years. We feel very lucky to have so many energetic, committed student volunteers here in Uplands. This busy organization contributes so much to Swansea, with many schemes running. Here are just two:
The COP Project works with South Wales Police on crime reduction and community safety. Increasing awareness and home security in student houses has benefits for the whole neighbourhood.
The Gardening and Decorating scheme helps people who are struggling to maintain their homes and gardens, perhaps due to age, ill health, mobility problems etc.
If you know someone in Uplands or Brynmill who is struggling, why not refer them to Discovery? Find out how online, or call your Labour Councillors for support.
