The CIN team

The Community Information Network exists to provide you with information on local support services and activities, money matters and social care.

Whether you want to meet people, get help at home, find out about benefits and support, discover a computer or exercise class, or volunteer in your local community – the Community Information Network is here to help you. The service is free and operates across the county through information drop-ins, over the phone or visiting you at home.

Scroll down for details on activities and opportunities near you. You can search our online Directory to find out what's going on in your local area or if you can't find what you are looking for, call us on 0345 450 1276 or email us at network@ageukoxfordshire.org.uk.
