Volunteering

Want to be part of social and environmental change across Oxford? Become a member of Oxford Hub! Oxford Hub brings people and organisations together to make Oxford a better place for everyone. To do this, they run a range of community volunteering programmes that build new, meaningful relationships in the community.

Why volunteer?

  • have a positive social impact in your local community
  • develop valuable new skills: communication, leadership and teamwork
  • meet other like-minded students
  • do something completely different
  • get involved in the wider community of Oxford, enhancing your sense of belonging in this city
  • try out a sector of work you might like a career in

Some current projects

  • Branch Up - gives young people access to opportunities and extra-curricular activities.
  • OxUnboxed - Oxford Hub’s non-profit refill shop, making plastic-free shopping available in central Oxford. 
  • FELLOW -  tutor those in Oxford who would like to build up their English skill. 
  • Schools Plus: tackle educational disadvantage in Oxford by virtually tutoring pupils one-on-one to ensure they reach their full potential. This can be for just 1 hour a week! 
  • Together Neighbours: with this programme, we'll give you a call if there's someone near you who needs help with a small practical task, like walking their dog or grocery shopping. 

Volunteering for Crankstart & Lloyds Scholars

We provide a bespoke volunteering support service for scholars. This includes support through friendly 1:1 meetings, exclusive events, socials, and high quality programmes that count towards your minimum volunteering requirement.

Fundraising is fun

Join Oxford SU’s Raise and Give (RAG) and fundraise through some great events for four charities chosen by our students. From hitchhiking around Europe and beyond in Jailbreak, to walking the runway at the RAG Fashion Show, to dancing the night away at the RAG Ball, there’s something for everybody.
