Summary booklet 2012 (678kB PDF)
5% of Oxford's population volunteer at least 1 hour per week, which is higher than the national average of 4.7%. Given the current population of Oxford, which is approximately 150,000 people, 5% equates to around 7500 people.
At minimum wage for 1 hour a week, the current level of volunteering in Oxford is worth approximately £2.3 million. Increasing volunteering by 1% (i.e. from 5% to 6%) would be worth almost half a million pounds.
You can find out about volunteering opportunities in Oxford from the Oxfordshire Community and Voluntary Action (OCVA) website and get more information from the OCVA Factsheets.
Becoming a volunteer is a fantastic way to meet new people, develop new skills and gain experience.
Many sports clubs, sporting activities and events rely on volunteers to make things happen. Voluntary roles can include helping with refreshments, publicity and organising events.
Some of the benefits of volunteering include:
The Sport Relief Mile takes place on 23 March 2014.
For those not taking part in the run, but who are keen to still support the day, there is the opportunity to volunteer and help make the day a success. Events like these rely on enthusiastic volunteers willing to give up a few hours of their time to help make the day fun for everyone taking part. If you would be interested please contact Vicki Galvin, GO Active Coordinator on 01865 252720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
