DUVO 35 Year Anniversary

We are celebrating 35 years of volunteering!

DU Student Volunteering and Outreach (DUSVO) was founded in 1989 as Student Community Action (SCA). Over the years this has grown, and we now operate as one team spread across DUSVO, College, Department & Society volunteering, Team Durham Community, and Staff Volunteering (Durham University Volunteering and Outreach).  As the team and projects have evolved, we have been shaped by many individuals across the university, and we want to celebrate this rich history of collaboration in our 35th year of operation at the university. 

There is an online and physical exhibition to showcase the past 35 years of DUSVO, Team Durham Community, and Staff Volunteering. We are sharing memories across our social media and working across the community to celebrate the occasion. We want to bring it to life by gathering and sharing the volunteering memories of our students, staff, alumni, service users, and community partners.
