What is Good Neighbours?
Good Neighbours is a brand new project launched by Oxford Hub this year, offering students the chance to get involved with a whole range of microvolunteering opportunities. Already this year Oxford students have:
Cooked & delivered soup to people experiencing homelessness
Helped sign-up Oxford citizens to the electoral register ahead of the General Election
Enjoyed digging in the sun at OxGrow community garden

All are welcome to come along and help out at this regular lunch club, with the optional opportunity to run activities for attendees (e.g. music, exercise, trips, talks, computer training, films... the options are endless!).

Food collection for Asylum Welcome
We'll be collecting food donations to help Asylum Welcome provide a weekly food bag for asylum seekers in urgent need.
Date to be confirmed - please let us know your preference!
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/Tescos/lectures bubble!
