Outreach Officer

Outreach Officer: Roberta Dedgjonaj

The Outreach Officer is responsible for managing the Outreach Committee, which is comprised of three strands: Castle Community ActionEnvironment Committee, and Charities Officer. Castle Outreach is one of the fastest growing areas in the Castle Community, with many exciting opportunities to get involved in. Some examples of projects include The Allotment Committee, Age UK Afternoon Teas and the popular Community Meals for the homeless.

Hi! I’m Roberta, the Castle Outreach Officer this year, and I’m a third year studying History! My vision is to make this college a more inclusive community with a real understanding of local issues, ensuring outreach stems from the most genuine, impactful and informed place possible. Since joining Durham in 2020, I have been part of various groups such as Sexpression Durham and Casle’s Welfare Team, and last year was the CCA Head of Secondary Education (Residential). I love travelling (when my Maintenance Loan comes through), reading and going to Spags with my friends!

If you have any questions about our initiatives, ideas or how to get involved, please do not hesitate to contact me at castle.outreach@durham.ac.uk
