What is Good Neighbours?
Good Neighbours offers students the chance to get involved with a whole range of microvolunteering opportunities. So far Oxford students have got involved in a range of activities, including:
  • Cooking & delivering soup to people experiencing homelessness
  • Helping to sign-up Oxford citizens to the electoral register ahead of the General Election
  • Digging in the sun at OxGrow community garden

We are currently putting together some volunteering opportunities for the end of Michaelmas.

Alternatively, apply for one of our committee roles - advertised above.
Need more convincing?
Just a few of the awesome benefits of volunteering are...
  • Having a genuinely positive social impact in your local community
  • Developing valuable new skills - whether it's communication, leadership or teamwork
  • Meeting other like-minded students
  • Challenging yourself to do something completely different
  • Getting involved in the wider city of Oxford - beyond the college/Tesco/lectures bubble!
