About

Welcome to Durham University Student Volunteering and Outreach, the home of student volunteering at Durham University! 

We are proud to be a student-led, community-focused organisation. Established in 1989, we aim to support the local community, and offer a unique volunteering experience to all Durham students. It's easy to get involved, whether participating in a project as a volunteer or leader, standing for election to the exec, or representing Student Volunteering in your college.

Overseen by a student executive committee working alongside permanent staff and based in the Palatine Centre, DU Student Volunteering and Outreach has long been at the centre of the Durham student experience.

We work within Durham's colleges, organising events and fundraising.

We also offer an exciting calendar of major fundraising events, including "Jazz and Wine" nights – we sadly don’t do tastings at the moment! Our annual Durham Volunteering Awards ceremony recognises and celebrates the commitment made by Durham students to the local community.

You can look at all the projects that we have to offer and send us an email if you have any queries.
