Information for University and College Groups

If you are thinking about organising a trip with your College or University then why not volunteer abroad with Original Volunteers. We have groups travelling for many different purposes, for a course module, a variety of experiences or with a specific task in mind. The case studies below are just a small selection of the groups who have travelled with us. Ask us for a callback  and we'll be happy to advise on your group's requirements regardless of whether your group is big or small and the time your group has to offer, there is a project out there waiting for a team to get stuck in!


Risk Assessment For Colleges And Universities

What is a risk assessment?
A risk assessment is a systematic assessment of the volunteer activities and environment surrounding the volunteer during their volunteer placement. It considers what can go wrong and the controls required to eliminate, reduce or control risks. The aim is to reduce the risks where reasonably practical. Universities and other organisations sending their members abroad often require a copy of a risk assessment or their own form to be completed confirming details and the local in-country coordinator’s details. Up to date risk assessments are currently available for Ghana, Morocco and Peru. We are also happy to complete any form required by the University or organisation’s placement support team. All forms required can be emailed to us directly which is the simplest way to send them. 
Ask us for a call back to discuss your group's requirements or call us : 01603 280702 pressing option 2.
