Team Oxford would like to hear from Community Action Groups who have events running in October that would benefit from additional volunteers and promotion so that these can be added to programme of activities taking place during ‘Actober’. If you would like to be included, please contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org and they’ll get back to you.
About Team Oxford
Team Oxford is a new movement aiming to help create a better city – one that is happier, healthier, more connected and more empowered. It supports voluntary and public sector organisations to innovate and thrive by promoting flexible and appealing ways for people to get involved.
Team Oxford launched in Volunteers’ Week 2017 with their website, social media sites, Introduction to Volunteering events with OCVA, promotion of the ‘Good Deeds for Oxford’ campaign and the Big Tea Party.
Work is now underway on the next step of the movement – Actober – a month of social action in the city. This campaign seeks to actively encourage and promote opportunities for people to take action and get involved.
Taking action might be getting involved in something new in your community, learning a new skill, making your voice heard as part of a community consultation or bringing friends and neighbours together. Team Oxford are working with organisations across the city to arrange a selection of different opportunities for you to get involved in and give you the chance to make a difference in your city. To find out more, sign up through their website and follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
