What is the need?

At Oxfordshire Youth we believe in investing in staff and volunteers so that they can provide high-quality services for young people. In recent years the youth sector in Oxfordshire has become increasingly volunteer-led and due to this shift our members are facing a common challenge to recruit staff and volunteers as well as ensuring they have the right infrastructure, support and training.

What is the need?

As part of our commitment to supporting the sector we recognise the need for and power of networking across our membership. Our member organisations are diverse groups with a range of needs, expertise, methods and skills and all have something to learn from one another.

The benefits of our networking events include:

  • Building nurturing relationships that are based on face to face connections;
  • Generating support for campaigns and events through presentations or sharing stories;
  • Developing practical and meaningful partnerships that can aid delivery of programmes and can increase the likelihood of funding through collaborative working;
  • Gain advice from other people with experience in the same contexts and with the same challenges as you may be facing;
  • Learn about other programmes and events in the region that your young people could be involved with or that you might be interested in contributing towards.
