    I used to volunteer with Girl Guiding UK as a Rainbows leader. And as of today I'm a voluntary officer on the Student Association at my college.

    So you could look at youth groups, charities, other non-profit organizations, positions within the uni, etc.

    befriending
    bucket collector

    one off projects are likely to be listed on websites like do-it, e.g. communal gardening

    your uni is also likely to have specific links to projects in the area

    Try teaching English, there are a few charities which will train you plus it's something great to put on your CV and opens up career options. Also volunteering in nursing homes, preferably specialist ones. If you do a professional degree like accountancy it might also be worth volunteering your skills to charities in general.
