We are a committee administering small grants on behalf of Oxford Quaker Meeting.

OxFAP needs money because many people in Oxford need money. We plug gaps in provision from other charities and agencies. Many agencies depend on us for small grants to help people in dire need.

This includes people coming out of homelessness, families in insecure housing, children in poverty, refugees and asylum seekers who have nothing, ex-prisoners struggling to make a new life, people who have lost their work, their health, their country or their loved ones.  

Difficulties in getting benefits can leave people destitute and hopeless. In the last few years this has affected more and more people.

Every penny donated goes via reputable agencies to people who need it. All our work is done by volunteers with no overheads.

OxFAP is one way in which Oxford Quakers respond to individual poverty in Oxford. 


All funds raised will be passed to Oxford And Swindon Area Quaker Meeting irrespective of whether our appeal target is reached, not reached or exceeded. If funds are being raised for a specific purpose and, for whatever reason, this purpose is no longer valid, the funds will be transferred to the charity for general use.


The charity

In Britain there are about 480 Quaker Meetings (Local Meetings) organised into Area Meetings which are roughly half the size of counties. Oxford & Swindon Area Meeting is one of 70 Area Meetings. Area Meeting is the principal meeting for church affairs, and attendance is an opportunity to share in our joint responsibilities for the business of the Society in the Area. Our nine local meetings are:

Abingdon, Burford, Charlbury, Faringdon, Headington, Marlborough, Oxford, Swindon and Witney.

Please consider donating to our two current appeals - see below:

OXFAP (Oxford Friends Action on Poverty) and our Garden Room Project

Registered charity (no. 1137897).

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
