Volunteers are such an important part of Homeless Oxfordshire.

Volunteering is defined as:

'Any activity that involves spending time, unpaid, doing something that aims to benefit the environment or someone (individuals or groups) other than, or in addition to, close relatives. Central to this definition is the fact that volunteering must be a choice freely made by each individual.'

This can include formal activity undertaken through public, private and voluntary organisations as well as informal community participation and social action."

That includes all of you reading, responding, and sharing our social media posts.
We thank you for helping us to spread the word and supporting our clients.

"Life is a journey, not a destination
And that’s OK. We’ve all got to start somewhere."

These are the words that you'll find in the 'About Us' section on our website. Recovering from homelessness isn't as straightforward as going from A-B. Nor are the reasons why someone might become homeless to begin with.

We work tirelessly to help people move on to a life of more independence.

We all need time to take a breather and to enjoy some well-deserved 'me time'.

For £10.99 you can help someone catch their breath and start to rebuild the things that being homeless has taken away from them.

So what better way to get involved than by joining our Book Club before our next meeting on June 4th?!

📚 The book that we will be discussing is #Isolarion by James Attlee, a charming tale of a pilgrimage set in a city most of us will be very familiar with... #Oxford! ⁠📚⁠
