What happens after I sign up? 

When you complete the form, one of our onboarding team will get in touch to chat about how you might like to be involved with OMA. They will provide you with more information on the roles available and how they fit together, as well as a general introduction to OMA.

Following this, you’ll be put in touch with any teams that you’d like to be involved in, and scheduled for a training session.

After that, you’re good to go! You can sign up for regular or ad hoc shifts, and you can always get in touch with any questions. We have an in-house team of debriefers who you can contact if you feel like a confidential chat, or just want to talk through anything you’ve experienced whilst volunteering. 

Do I need to have any experience before I can start?

No! The only roles that require any experience are Case Management and Graphic Design.  We ask Hall and Support volunteers to complete OSAB Adult Safeguarding Training, but this can be done after you have attended some initial training sessions, and is a free short course you can find online.

Can under 18s volunteer?

Unfortunately, we cannot currently accept under 18s as volunteers.

I want to help but I can’t commit to volunteering regularly, what else can I do to help? 

Signing up as a Hall volunteer or volunteer driver is always an amazing way to support OMA, as you can sign up for shifts or delivery routes whenever you’re available and have the time to fulfil them. You can also set up donation stations at your home, place of work or school or set up fundraisers too! If either of these sound like they’d be a good fit for you, please email sourcing@oxfordmutualaid.org and we’ll send you all the relevant information.

My question isn’t answered!

No worries – please email volunteering@oxfordmutualaid.org and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
