Advertising Volunteering Opportunities:

There are several ways I can promote volunteering roles in Oxford, the South & Vale through the Volunteer Centre:

There is an Opportunities and Events page where I can post your roles: https://vcoxfordshire.org/blog/

There is a Volunteer Centre Oxfordshire Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/VolunteerCentreOxfordshire/

There is also a Volunteer Centre newsletter which I send out to 3000 potential volunteers (500+ opened it last month). We also write a column in the Oxford Mail and Times called Voluntary Voice which is published weekly on a Thursday. You can send me articles of about 150 – 200 words for the newsletter and slightly longer for the Voluntary Voice.

I also see people face to face in the office at Floyds Row and the Job Centre if you want to send me hard copies of any promotional material.
