Oxfordshire Community and Voluntary Action (OCVA) has appointed and trained six volunteer Community Ambassadors who are now operating in Abingdon, Henley, Thame, Wallingford and Wantage & Grove.
Community Ambassadors support charities and community groups in their area to do more good work. They enable others to volunteer, help local charities to access funding and build a supportive network in their town.
Heather Alexandra, Community Ambassador for Henley, says “Henley charities and community groups are looking for ways to raise funds and find more volunteers, as well as make contact with other organisations in the area. I am a long term resident of Henley who knows and cares about the town. As one of a new team of volunteer Community Ambassadors across Oxfordshire, I can give information and advice as well as signposting to relevant support services.”
Individuals who are looking for volunteering opportunities can also get in touch with Heather and she will help them to find the perfect local volunteering role for them.
