The Impact Network is composed of Committee which represents the broad range of student volunteering taking place across the UK. They are responsible for organising an annual conference which brings the movement together to discuss challenges and opportunities and to learn skills. They also partake in research and sector analysis, which allows groups to lobby and present the value of student community action and produce resources for supporting students and staff in building successful student community projects.
