High Sheriff’s Community Integration Awards
Thursday 18 January, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
On Thursday 18th January we will welcome representatives from 12 different charities that OCF has funded through our Community Integration Awards. They will share inspiring stories about some of the people who are benefitting from the support of our donors, and showing the outcomes in action.
Through the awards, OCF has given away £51,479 to local charities that are bringing together different communities and people that wouldn’t normally mix. The High Sheriff Jane Cranston will showcase projects that build bridges between young and old, between different ethnic communities, and between people with disabilities and able-bodied people. We will also give an update about our plans for building on our Community Integration funding in future. Lord Mayor of Oxford Jean Fooks will also be in attendance.
The celebration will be held at Tap Social Movement – a new brewery and social enterprise in Oxford that employs ex-offenders, helping them back into society when they are released from prison. The brewery’s own Oxford-made craft beer will be served (or non-alcoholic equivalent), along with canapes from Trax, another social enterprise that upskills young people outside the education system.
Groups that received awards and will be represented at the event are:
- African Families in the UK (AFiUK) CIC
- Cowley Road Works
- Cutteslowe Allotment Association
- EMBS Community College
- Folk Arts Oxford
- Full Circle
- Museum of Oxford Development Trust
- Oxford Against Cutting
- Oxford Contemporary Music
- Oxford Hindu Temple and Community Centre Project
- Refugee Resource
- Soldiers of Oxfordshire Trust (SOFO)
By invitation only.
