Volunteering across Oxfordshire


Dear Residents,


It’s time to celebrate the enthusiasm and passion of Oxfordshire’s volunteer and
community organisations. The Districts and City have been inundated with offers of
help to support those residents who are and will struggle to cope over the coming
weeks and months, for which we thank you all. The need for assistance has
however, come further into focus as Government announced the most vulnerable in
our communities will need to self-isolate for 12 weeks.


Oxfordshire has united to support the initiatives of ‘Oxfordshire All In’ and ‘Oxford
Together’. We recognise many of you are already working / volunteering in your
communities but for anyone who finds that extra 10 minutes, these sites can help
coordinate your effort – whether delivering essentials, putting the bins out for
someone, or being on the other end of a phone, there are hundreds of opportunities
available across Oxfordshire for you to get involved.


To ensure that residents know where to turn, all community groups, community
organisations and local businesses are being asked to include details of their
initiatives on the Oxfordshire All In Response Map. If you have linked with your
District or the City Council already – please do not worry we will make the link. Let’s
maximise your ability to spend the time helping our communities.

If you live in Vale of White Horse, South Oxfordshire, West Oxfordshire or Cherwell
then please visit https://www.oxfordshireallin.org/ who can help and have details on all opportunities
across Oxfordshire.


To volunteer in Oxford City, please register your details at Oxford Together
We thank you for your incredible efforts so far and we know that together we can
help support each other and keep our communities thriving through these difficult
times, however please ensure you continue following government advice to stay safe
and well.
