- Academic Advice and Support
SVB is the Volunteering branch of Undeb Bangor's Student Opportunities Department. SVB has been continuously providing community projects in and around the Bangor area since 1952, with the first ever Tea Party project event (which we still hold twice a year!). Since then SVB has grown to over 50 regular volunteering projects, which can be split into the following subcategories; Mental Health Projects, Children's Projects, Environmental Projects, Elderly projects and Community & Sport Projects.
SVB has a huge range of projects to be a part of so if you are looking to commit yourself to a project regularly or get stuck into a one-off event, you have definitely come to the right place!! For more information on all of our projects, make sure you go over to our 'Volunteering Opportunities' tab where you can find the details of all of our projects and how to apply.
