If you need any further help or support in securing your ideal volunteering opportunity or need a little inspiration, we hold 1-1 support sessions. The sessions will get you registered on our volunteering brokerage site- oxonvolunteers.org , identify at least three possible volunteering opportunities and contact details and provide you with any further support that you need  The sessions can be between 30- 60 minutes (depending on your needs and the level of support you require). Please email vol@ocva.org.uk or call 01865 251946 to book a session with our Volunteer Coordinator.

Please note these sessions are for people who live in the City of Oxford, South Oxfordshire and the Vale of White Horse. If you live in West Oxfordshire, contact Volunteer Link Up. If you live in Cherwell, contact Volunteer Connect.

OCVA believe that volunteering must be inclusive, so run some one-to-one volunteer appointments for volunteers with additional support needs (on a self-defined basis). To register interest in a one-to-one appointment, give us a call on 01865 251946, or email vol@ocva.org.uk. 

The Volunteer Centre out and about

We regularly attend jobs fairs and volunteering fairs and will keep our Facebook page updated with the places we are visiting around the County.

We also keep a blog with updates about volunteering in Oxfordshire and accounts of what we’ve been up to!

Want us to visit you? We’re more than happy to bring our Introduction to Volunteering sessions or run a drop-in at your school, college, charity, or place of work! (For larger organisations, a charge may apply to cover our cost). Just get in touch with vol@ocva.org.uk or 01865 251946, with at least 2 weeks’ notice.
