Community Action Groups

The Community Action Group (CAG) Project consists of over 60 groups across Oxfordshire, at the forefront of community led climate change action, organising events and projects to take action on issues including waste, transport, food, energy, biodiversity and social justice.

Started in 2001, the network is the largest of its kind in the UK, running around 1,500 events per year, attended by over 65,000 local residents and contributing over 27,000 volunteer hours to the county.
The CAG Project team provide free day-to-day support to the network members including:

• Help setting up a new group and developing projects.
• Insurance cover for network activities.
• Access to CAG funding for special projects.
• Help sourcing external funds for larger projects.
• Press, media and communications.
• Training, events and skill sharing.
• Signposting to other organisations, e.g. legal help.
• Working with local and national government

The project is managed by Resource Futures and funded by Oxfordshire County Council.
