Who Are We?

DART International UK is an all-volunteer Humanitarian Response Team that deploys worldwide to assist disaster affected communities. Since it’s creation in 2014, the Charity has delivered aid, equipment and training to communities in the South Pacific, Asia, Africa and the Caribbean. All proceeds received go into our training programmes, deployments, and aid missions.

Trees are a vital environmental, cultural and economic resource. However, in the wake of natural disasters fallen trees close roads, cause flooding, damage buildings and bring down power lines, invariably delaying the international relief effort.

DART provide volunteer teams of experienced and qualified arborists to support worldwide humanitarian operations by removing obstructive trees and enabling other aid and rescue organisations to operate safely and effectively. read more…
