We will launch a grants round in the autumn/winter to alleviate the cost of living crisis across the county. We are working with local charities and community organisations to help us direct funding where it is most needed.

The new Oxfordshire Collective Business Fund is a way for local businesses to make a genuine difference to the communities in which they operate, by combining contributions in one fund from which grants are made annually to Oxfordshire charitable organisations.

This Christmas, create a new beginning for anyone currently experiencing homelessness in Oxfordshire
At this time of year, many people are reminded how vital it is that everyone has a safe, stable and decent home. Homelessness robs people of this basic need.
Today is Giving Tuesday – the antidote to Black Friday and a global day celebrating the power of giving. We are marking this day by recognising the potential of philanthropy in Oxfordshire, and understanding what we can do to help communities thrive post-pandemic.
The Didcot Powerhouse Fund aims to tackle inequality and deprivation within the Garden Town Area of Influence in Didcot. It was founded by Didcot First, key local employers, professionals and volunteers. Together they want to ensure Didcot becomes a more inclusive and sustainable community by attracting funding from a wide range of sources. The Fund was officially launched at an event on the 10th November.
