Affiliate Jobs & Volunteering

The Big Lottery Fund

OAYP has been awarded a grant from the Big Lottery to develop a new programme called the Community Link-Up project. The idea behind the project is to enable OAYP to work with communities, young people and other stakeholders to develop volunteer-led youth provision in areas which do not currently have a youth club or youth provision.


Training for the Voluntary Youth Sector

As a part of both the Club Support programme and Big Lottery Project, OAYP offers a calendar of training courses for its affiliated groups as well as other, non-affiliated organisations working with children and young people across Oxfordshire. Courses include Safeguarding, Emergency First Aid and Introduction to Youth Work.

Peer Education

We work with schools in Oxfordshire to train young people to become Peer Educators around the issue of healthy relationships.



OAYP are proud to work alongside several local and national organisations.
