When an emergency strikes we need to raise funds quickly to get equipment and staff off the ground to respond.

Volunteer to help Oxfam raise essential funds

We need teams of volunteers to help us raise essential funds quickly. You could volunteer a few hours to help raise money at an Oxfam street collection, or organise your own collection in your area. You could also help to organise workplace fundraising events, such as bake sales, lunchtime quizzes, raffles or making the boss sit in a bath of beans. Whatever you decide to do, our dedicated team will be on hand to support you every step of the way with advice and materials.

Location: Any
Date: When an emergency strikes
Time commitment: 1-2 days
Number of participants: Two per team

Take the emergency challenge

Give your teams a hands-on insight into Oxfam's humanitarian response work with this team-building emergency simulation. Teams of four respond to a demanding series of high-pressure scenarios relating to the situations Oxfam faces when disaster strikes. The physical and mental challenges are designed to test teamwork, fitness and decision-making under pressure. For more details, get in touch.

To thank teams for their support, and to give them a real insight into our work, we can organise a unique, behind-the-scenes tour of our humanitarian supply centre in Oxfordshire.
