Medical and access requirements

Oxfam is committed to making our opportunities accessible for everyone. You can discuss your access requirements with us in advance or you can detail the specifics within the profile when you sign up.

Before you sign up

Read the role descriptions to see the different type of roles we offer. We work closely with Attitude is Everything whose ethos is that Deaf and disabled people should be as independent as they want to be at live music events. Many festival websites have access information pages, which provide information on facilities such as viewing platforms or accessible campsites. You can find links to the official festival websites on each of our festival pages.

Your profile

You can detail your access requirements on your profile. Telling us your requirements will have no impact on whether we offer you a place but will simply prompt us to get in touch to ensure you have the best experience possible. If you have forgotten to fill this in or your needs have changed then please get in touch with the team at festivals@oxfam.org.uk.

Health conditions

When you’re joining us at a festival, it is essential that you inform us of any relevant physical or mental health conditions so that we can best support you to volunteer safely. Please make sure you add this information in your profile after you have signed up. Read Oxfam’s disability and impairment policy (PDF, 186KB).

Access requirements

Oxfam welcomes Deaf and disabled volunteers, and is dedicated to making festival volunteering as accessible as possible. If you have any access requirements, make sure you write this information in your profile when you sign up and we will be in touch to make sure we’ve understood correctly and to ensure we know how to best support you on site.

There are many measures we can take to provide support, such as allocating you to specific accessible roles, providing a closer parking space, or bringing a Personal Assistant (PA) on-site. If you need to bring a PA, please ensure you read Oxfam’s PA policy (PDF, 114KB).

If you do not declare a condition which could affect your volunteering experience, Oxfam may not be able to provide the support you need. Please send us any relevant information as soon as you can so that we can facilitate a seamless experience.
