Staff Volunteering and Outreach (SVO)
The Staff Volunteering and Outreach (SVO) team provides an opportunity for Durham University staff to engage with a range of local community organisations that benefit from working in partnership with the University.
Durham University operates an employer supported volunteering scheme, enabling University staff members to volunteer for up to 5 days per year during work-time. Opportunities range from individual placements utilising an individual's professional experience, to departmental team challenges involving practical tasks. Through the following pages you can find out more about the Staff Volunteering scheme and how you can get involved.
As a Community Partner, the SVO team can provide community groups, organisations and charities and with teams of staff volunteers or individuals to help you out on a short-term and occasionally longer-term basis.
