CAG Oxfordshire is an organisation which exists to benefit the wider community, primarily by supporting the network of over 90 Community Action Groups (CAGs) in Oxfordshire. CAGs are community groups and not-for-profit businesses that are improving our communities and taking practical action on social and environmental issues - especially climate change. The CAGs are the members of our organisation, set up as a co-operative Community Benefit Society.
The CAG Oxfordshire Network’s vision is an Oxfordshire with resilient and empowered communities, working together so that people and planet can thrive within ecological limits. For years, CAGs have been at the forefront of community-led climate action, organising events and projects to take action on issues including waste, transport, food, energy, biodiversity and social justice. Our work extends beyond climate change - and we know that to achieve our vision we must tackle inequality and other injustices of all kinds in our communities.
As a staff team dedicated to supporting grassroots action, we work together with a range of great partners and collaborators to get stuff done. You can find out a bit more about what we do on our website.
As a co-operative, we also subscribe to this Statement on the Cooperative Identity – the Values and Principles. We are proud members of Locality, Co-ops UK, Oxfordshire Community & Voluntary Action, and are Oxford Living Wage employers.
