The Committee

Our Committee of 21 volunteers aims to provide a friendly and stimulating environment for Newcomers to meet, settle into the Oxford community and to explore a variety of aspects of life in the city and surrounds. We try to create an environment in which members feel they can approach any member of the committee for help, advice and support.
