On Wednesday over 100 people attended the launch of the new Age Friendly Banbury partnership at Banbury Town Hall. They were invited to share their views and ideas about what the town is like as a place to grow old – and gave overwhelming support for the project.
Small local charities across the Thames Valley have received almost £5 million from four community foundations following a record-breaking year.
Banbury needs you – to help ensure the town is doing the best it can for older people. A special launch event takes place next Wednesday, June 20, open to everybody interested in helping Banbury become one of Britain’s first age-friendly towns.
Oxford Early Years is a bold new initiative bringing together parents, professionals, educators, local representatives and funders to work together and take action to tackle lack of social mobility. OCF is a member of the action group known as the Lab Team.
Following a recent strategic review, OCF has identified that a priority objective is a step change in its community impact activities. To achieve this, we will initiate a new approach to collaborative partnerships to develop lasting solutions to key issues of social disadvantage in Oxfordshire.
