Thank-you for your interest in registering your organisation on the VBase website, and welcome to the Edinburgh Napier Students’ Association community!
As students embark on new courses and careers in Edinburgh Napier University, there is an increasing need to gain well rounded employability and personal skills. Through VBase students can access, record and benefit from volunteering, whether for personal reasons or academic requirements. Our primary focus is to promote opportunities that have local impact in our community as well as enabling students to develop themselves in a real working organisation.
As a partner organisation, we hope to develop a great working relationship with you and are here to support you in using VBase and getting your volunteering opportunities out to students.
As an approved partner organisation, your team can add new volunteering opportunities to VBase as and when they arise, can monitor volunteer applications, and keep organisational information up to date. When a student applies to volunteer with you, an email will be sent to you with the contact details of the student, and you can then chase up their interest however is appropriate.
If you have any questions about registration or VBase, just email us.
Please note that we currently accept as charity partners the following types of organisation:
- Charities registered in Scotland
- Local government or associated
- Not-for-profit community groups
We do not generally accept social enterprise businesses as partner organisations, although we do make exceptions if your opportunities are particularly exciting or useful for our students. The best thing to do if you're unsure is email us to discuss your business and how you want students to be involved in it.
