Volunteer your time
Our volunteers are people who have chosen to give willingly of their time to work with the charity to support people with a disability.
Volunteering can be such a rewarding experience. Some volunteers have been working with the organisation for years, whilst others are new and are beginning to realise just how wonderful it is to make a positive difference to someone’s life.
If you are new to the idea of volunteering it can often seem quite daunting, but don’t worry. We are looking for everyday folk who might have a few free hours each week to share an interest with someone with a disability. That hobby you’ve had for years might be just the thing that one of our Members is looking for.
We ask that volunteers be able to commit a few hours each week or fortnight for at least 6 months. These hours will be agreed between you and the person you are paired with and can be flexible to suit you both. Asking Volunteers to commit for a period of time means that the Member has the opportunity to build their skills, knowledge and confidence, and can build a successful relationship with their Volunteer. Relationships are so important and are the cornerstone of success.
WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY
“I am so grateful to Enrych Oxfordshire as I now have a wonderful volunteer who visits me most weeks and supports me with baking which is something I love but thought I would never be able to do again when I lost the use of my left arm. We chat whilst baking and have become very good friends. Thank you Enrych.”
— Amy, Banbury

Fundraise for us
If you would like to do a sponsored event raising funds for us or have another fundraising idea we would be delighted to hear from you. Please contact us.
If you run or work for a local company that is looking to support a local charity in a variety of ways then please contact us. You and your team could actively play your part in supporting the people in Oxfordshire needing our services either by raising funds, offering volunteer hours, assisting us to run events etc. In turn we will advertise your business in our communications.
If you would like to make a regular donation to Enrych or just a one-off donation we should be most grateful. We receive no statutory funding and therefore have to raise every penny we need in order to support as many people as possible across Oxfordshire.
