Community Action Groups

The CAG Oxfordshire consists of over 80 groups across Oxfordshire at the forefront of community-led environmental action, organising events and projects to take action on issues including waste, transport, food, energy and biodiversity. Collectively the network runs over 4,200 events per year, attended by over 81,000 local residents. CAG Project staff offer hands-on, day to day help and advice for groups, and help the network to grow.

To find out more contact the staff team and sign up to The Key, the fortnightly newsletter for all of Oxfordshire's sustainability news, events, funding and jobs. To get involved straight away, have a look at the CAG Event Calendar.

See also the Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (BBOWT) website for information about local wildlife and the Wild Oxfordshire Directory to explore other groups and organisations across the county and how to get involved.
