Activities and services:


BTCV in Oxfordshire seeks to support and encourage people to volunteer some of their time, skills and enthusiasm, to create and sustain environmental action within local communities.  It does this by providing individuals with the necessary knowledge, skills, opportunities and confidence to do so through a range of activities.

Owning no land, BTCV provides a unique bridge between individuals and their environment, by linking land managers and volunteers.  Its activities result in a wide range of improvements for local communities, achieved through using the environment to deliver social, educational and health related outcomes.

In Oxfordshire, BTCV directly delivers a range of Conservation Holidays, training courses, Green Gyms and one-day conservation projects that are open to everyone.  It also supports around 35 local conservation and community groups that are members of the BTCV Community Network and delivers Employee Action Days in partnership with businesses and other organisations.  A bi-monthly e-mail Bulliten is available to everyone.  Further details can be found on the website.

Over the past two years (ending 27-05-09), BTCV in Oxfordshire directly supported over 470 volunteers, worked with 53 local community groups and improved 41 locations, resulting in 1,745 days of environmental action being carried out by volunteers on 316 individual projects.
