Miss Out to Help Out
ITV have partnered with The National Lottery to encourage people to use the time they'd normally watch TV to do some volunteering in the community (you can always catch up on ITV Hub later!).
No matter how little time you have or where you live, there’s always something you can do to help your community. You can even help out online or over the phone, from the comfort of your sofa.
Oxford Hub - Oxford Together initiative
Oxford Hub are helping to build a community response to ensure we can provide support to the most vulnerable in our communities, and make sure that we are looking out for one another.
If you’re healthy and low-risk you can be a community champion and help others across the city. Sign up now, and pass the word on. You can also refer people for support.
