Guests talk across the table at an OCF event at Broughton Castle

At OCF, we hold a small number of our own events aimed at our supporters and corporate partners. However, the team can also be found out and about attending key events in the charitable sector locally, as well as connecting with businesses and other influencers as speakers, participants or stallholders.

OCF webinars on Zoom

We have run regular webinars since April 2020, which feature live interviews with charitable organisations we have funded, donors and subject-matter experts. Recordings of all previous webinars can be found on our YouTube page here, with the latest recording also posted to this page.

Take part in our cost-of-living grants consultation

We will launch a second grants round in early summer to alleviate the ongoing 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. To ensure our funding has impact and targets the current challenges linked to the cost of living, we are running both a survey and an online workshop to consult with the local delivery organisations working directly in our communities.
