Why does Branch Up exist?
Branch Up aims to tackle extracurricular disadvantage. Many of the children that we work with do not have access to extracurricular activities. This has a detrimental effect on their social development and their educational attainment.
We aim to give young people access to opportunities they would not otherwise have while improving their social skills and confidence.
Activity days
  • Branch Up run three activity days per semester for young people referred by social services
  • These days include visiting a zoo, going ice skating or running sports and art workshops
  • You will be paired one on one with a young person for the full day so that the young person benefits from near to peer interactions.
  • We will provide you with a range of ongoing support and training.
  • All expenses will be paid for you.
  • Apply here and choose activity days.
  • The days usually last from about 10:30- 3pm. Exact times will be sent out a few days before.
  • Activity days are always Saturdays of 2nd, 4th & 7th week- put them in your diary now!
Volunteering with Branch Up
  • Being a part of Branch Up is a great chance to gain experience working with children. Through training sessions and practical volunteering, you will develop a range of skills.
  • We reimburse all volunteers reasonable travel expenses.
  • Volunteering at Branch Up is social and you'll have the chance to meet many like-minded people, why not ask a friend to sign up with you too?
  • Oxford Hub is committed to making our activities inclusive to all students. We can make reasonable adjustments to application processes, selection workshops, training sessions, volunteering projects and other activities on a case-by-case basis.
