Info for Local Community


We are Student Community Action, Durham University’s largest volunteering organisation, and we provide volunteering opportunities for students that have a meaningful and lasting impact on the people and communities we work with.

Currently we run over 35 volunteering projects in Durham. These projects vary from tutoring to gardening and from working with at risk adults to walking dogs.

Projects that anyone in the community can refer people to are:


Dog Walking

Generations Together

1-1 Tutoring

Serving the Community

Student Community Action is passionate about serving the community to the best of our abilities. For instance, we sit on the Durham Council Area Action Partnership (AAP).

If you have any suggestions or comments on how we can best serve the community please get in contact.

Perhaps you are a local community organisation in need of volunteers? We have over 700 actively volunteering students and hundreds more on our books. If you are looking for more volunteers why don’t you get in contact?

Durham Market

We are looking to set up a weekly stall at Durham market, so watch out for us there in the near future!
