ACT state committee

All Oxfam-related events and activities in the ACT are coordinated by the local state committee.

How to get involved

You can also volunteer on a regular or casual basis at the Canberra office. Contact the ACT state committee to find out more.

If you’d like to find out more about local groups near you, or you wish to start one then please email our Oxfam Groups Coordinator, with the subject line Website ACT State Committee enquiry.
