How can you get involved with making a difference in your community and beyond?
We know there’s no one size fits all, and we’d like to help you find the ways to get involved with community action that work best for you. The first step is to look at the groups in the Community Action Group Network to find one near you, or that inspires you to get involved. You can contact groups directly via their pages on our website, and also find links to their social media.
If you’re unsure exactly what group or activity might suit you, or would like to chat about volunteering with one of the Community Action Groups (CAGs) get in touch with Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org
We can also support you if there’s not a group already in your area or focused on the issue you’re passionate about but you’d like to be part of starting one.
If you’d like to find out about volunteering opportunities with groups working particularly on building a sustainable food system, in Oxford, then take a look at Good Food Oxford’s volunteering page.
Perhaps things like climate change, environmental issues, waste, sustainable transport, biodiversity not your thing? Or you’re looking for something a bit different than the Community Action Group Network? For more general volunteering opportunities check out OCVA’s Oxfordshire Volunteers website.
If you’re a student then definitely check out Oxford Hub (for Oxford University students) or Brookes Hub (for Oxford Brookes students). They work with many amazing projects making a difference in Oxford and beyond, from conferences on international development, to working to reduce social isolation, to preventing food waste.
