SCA runs over 35 different student-led projects. Covering both Durham and Queen’s Campus, there’s a wide variety of opportunities to suit your interests, abilities and requirements.
We’re proud to be a student-led, student-focused organisation. Established in 1989, we aim to support the local community, and offer a unique volunteering experience to 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 SCA in your college.
