Durham University Volunteering and Outreach (DUVAO) are an organisation which promotes community outreach and volunteering activities across the University which students are encouraged to become involved with. This includes supporting local community groups, schools and charities. Lauren Powdrell, a third year English student, kindly volunteered to be our Project Leader at the beginning of the academic year which means she has been very busy encouraging students to become involved in outreach and volunteering with DASH. Lauren has produced a newsletter which describes the work she has been doing and the student involvement she has encouraged last term. We would like to thank Lauren for her fantastic efforts in engaging students in fund raising activities and volunteering work and supporting us in the work we do.

Their newsletter is available to view in PDF format HERE

If any students are looking to volunteer with us, please contact Lauren in the first instance.
