Student Community Action (SCA) is an independent registered charity which is embedded within Cambridge University. We have been matching students to volunteering opportunities in the community for over 40 years.

Cambridge SCA exists to encourage the involvement of students in voluntary community work, providing services to disadvantaged groups within the community and giving students a valuable learning experience. We actively recruit students from both the University of Cambridge and Anglia Ruskin University.

We offer more than 70 volunteering opportunities. Ten of these projects are internally managed and known as “internal projects” since they cater specifically to the interests of Cambridge students; the other projects are run by a wide range of external organisations which we recruit for.
