FROM SOUTH OXFORDSHIRE DISTRICT COUNCIL

The work of the voluntary and community sector across Oxfordshire is invaluable and the county has some of the best initiatives across the country.  It is therefore no surprise that all local authorities in the county have been inundated with offers of help and support. 

In order to celebrate and support the enthusiasm and passion of the local voluntary and community sector, Oxfordshire has united to support the initiatives of Oxfordshire All In and Oxford Together.

We recognise that many of you who can would like to support your local communities and these sites can help coordinate your efforts – whether that’s 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 and these organisations will be a central point of information for you.

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 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 Oxfordshire All In who have details on all opportunities across Oxfordshire.

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.
