Welcome to

We are a network of over 100 community action groups working across Oxfordshire to make it a safer, fairer, greener, more sustainable place to live, work and visit. 

Together, we’re building an Oxfordshire with resilient and empowered communities, so that people and planet can thrive within ecological limits. Started in 2001, the network is the largest of its kind in the UK.


Our member groups work in their local communities organising events and projects to take action on issues including waste, transport, food, energy, biodiversity and social justice. 


Groups working on similar themes come together as part of our collaborate groups, working with other associated, like-minded groups and organisations to find ways to share skills and experience and to work together on common goals.


At CAG Oxfordshire we offer support, advice and expertise to help everyone work together.

As an organisation we exist to support you - the members of the CAG Network and the wider Oxfordshire community - to make community-led change happen. We’re gathering feedback to help us improve our work and make it more useful to you.

We invite frank and constructive feedback and welcome all perspectives and voices.


So if you are involved in running a CAG group and have a few minutes to help it will be really useful!

Please complete by May 24th 2024.


Our member groups span the county and work on a wide variety of issues. They welcome new volunteers and offer an easily accessible way of getting involved in climate action whether your interest lies in biodiversity, waste reduction, food surplus, community cohesion or active transport. To find a group near you take a look at our listings. If you’d like to get involved in some way, you’ll find all their information and contact details on their pages.

The network runs over 4,000 events per year, attended by over 80,000 residents, and  contributes nearly 100,000 volunteer hours to the county. Events range from repair cafes and seedling swaps to talks by leading activists and environmentalists. Everyone is welcome to join events, volunteer with a group or apply to join the network. 



The CAG Oxfordshire team provide free, day-to-day support to network members including advice on how to set up your group and develop projects, assistance with insurance, access to funding, communications assistance, training and skill sharing, access to resources and facilitating work with local and national government, while our collaborate groups connect members and interested external organisations and individuals working on similar themes to facilitate collective action.
