One-Off Volunteering Opportunities


Whether it's due to the fact you’re working, have family commitments, or are just busy living life, sometimes one-off volunteering suits better than a long-term commitment. To help you find time-limited ways to make a difference, we have collated opportunities here which require a one-off commitment of up to a week, rather than regular hours throughout the year. These opportunities occur across Oxfordshire.

This is part of work we are doing with Team Oxford to make it easier for more of us to create an even better Oxford — one that is happier, healthier & more connected. To find out more, visit www.team-oxford.co.uk.

Please also note, that many of our longer-term roles can also be flexible and fit around your needs. If you are interested in regular volunteering but find it difficult to fit around your routine, we recommend you browse the full website and contact those of interest to see what can be done to suit your availability.
