Plymouth Guild is a registered charity established in 1907 that helps more than 15,000 people and several hundred organisations each year with information, advice and practical support.
The Guild's objectives are to:
- to assist, comfort and guide any person who may be in distress by reason of poverty, ill health, loneliness or other cause.
- promote, encourage and foster activities for the common good of the community within Plymouth and West Devon.
- encourage, initiate and co-operate in the work of other statutory and voluntary bodies to advance education, health and the relief of poverty; distress or sickness.
Opportunities with Plymouth Guild
A representative of Plymouth University’s senior leadership team is a Trustee of Plymouth Guild.
The range of Plymouth Guild services from Volunteer and Hearing & Sight Centres to Carers Hub, represent opportunities for our students to enhance their experience and employability, particularly through volunteering which can be arranged through our Students' Union.
There is a dedicated Plymouth University page on the Plymouth Guild website which highlights some of the practical student engagement that has taken place in partnership with the Guild.
