There is lots of information here but if you have any further questions just send an e-mail to

If you would like to help in the cafe or bar, talk to someone who is working and they’ll show you where to put your name down for your first shift on the rota. Once you’ve worked at the Cowley before you can come in and put your name down yourself. (To work in the bar you must be a member of the 12 London Road Social Club.)

Take a look at our Volunteer Information pack.

If you help out in the club you can join the Cowley Crew email list by e-mailing, introducing yourself, and asking to be added.

Once you have been helping out for about three months you can apply at a general meeting to become a member of the Cowley Club Co-operative. This co-op owns the building and makes all major decisions about the Cowley. By becoming a member you have an equal say in the running of the whole project. This co-op has about 200 members and is different from the bar (12LRSC) co-op which has over 3000 members.
