Hours should be approved by the organisation that you've volunteered your time to, your line-manager if you are a member of staff using your Service Time or King's Volunteering ( if you have volunteered your time for an initiative King's Volunteering have organised. 

If your approver isn't one of the above, please email with a brief explanation as to who your approver is and why they are approving your hours. Any volunteering hours related to KCLSU activity (e.g. committee member hours and student group activity) should be logged with KCLSU.
