UCDVO works in partnership with a number of charities, non-governmental and not-for-profit organisations. Currently, partners are in India and South East Asia, Tanzania and Uganda. UCDVO has built strong relationships in each of the communities and partners over a number of years. Types of volunteering include supporting partner programmes in the areas of health, education, sustainable livelihoods and agriculture.
