OCVA co-ordinate information from Voluntary and Community groups to be featured in the Oxford Times Voluntary Voice column and full-page features, subject to the editor’s approval, in either the Oxford Time or Oxford Mail.

Both papers are particularly interested in good news stories from local charities, developments in the sector and how they affect local charities or particular issues or theme that your organisation is trying to address- such as homelessness, environment etc and the difference that you make to communities.

If you would like help developing a full-page feature or would like an article in the voluntary voice section, please email Tariq: vol@ocva.org.uk for further information.
