FairPlay/Climate Justice Campaign

FairPlay logo

Social Justice Network




FairPlay is a network in Cutteslowe, Summertown, Waterways and Wolvercote which hopes to bring together all the voluntary organisations and groups, including the churches, who are working in their different ways for social justice issues. It aims to:

  • keep in touch and exchange information
  • encourage and support one another's separate activities
  • share resources
  • arrange joint events and act together
    (e.g. campaigning) when appropriate.

There is a small co-ordinating group nominated by the network's members and agreed to annually at an Open Meeting.

Open Meetings (open to anyone interested in the network or in membership with one of its groups) are held at least twice a year to share news and ideas, discuss current issues, and plan ahead.

A list of member organisations and a quarterly FairPlay news sheet can be received by email by anyone signing up for them. Contact: fairplayoxford@gmail.com

St Michael's Involvement
