About OCVA

Enabling a diverse voluntary and community sector to flourish in Oxfordshire. We do this by providing advice, information and training, acting as advocates and representatives, and building partnerships.

We provide an accredited volunteer centre, group development, contract opportunities, networks, forums, core training and sector events. We give leadership, advice to funding providers with an interest in Oxfordshire and more.

Our values 

As an organisation and as individuals we value:

We will work within an equal opportunities policy which is regularly reviewed. We will respect the rights, views and needs of others.

We will be effective and reliable in our service delivery, partnership working, and relationships with funders.

We will enable others to take responsibility for identifying and achieving their own objectives. We will support the take up of our services by individuals and groups from a diverse range of backgrounds, including the most disadvantaged.

We will respond to a constantly changing environment with energy and creativity, in order to influence the future of our sector.

We encourage working together to build strength and sustainability in the sector.
