About us

Working Towards a Better Tomorrow

Here at The Dominica UK Association (DUKA), we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 1978, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress. Learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see.

Our values

The Dominica UK Association (DUKA) wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact it.
