We have set up a Knowledge Hub on our website to allow easy access to our Insights and other research reports we think will be of interest for you to read. OCF are committed to developing our knowledge and understanding of Oxfordshire’s needs. We started with Oxfordshire Uncovered, published in 2016, to create insight into the priority issues and where they are located. Our Knowledge Hub will keep growing. 

Our Knowledge Hub pages will grow as we continue to develop and publish local insights, to inform our strategy and achieve proactive solutions to complex social problems. Our Needs Analysis Reports delve further into local issues, such as pockets of unemployment, low skills or education and our geographic Insight Summaries pinpoint particular areas in Oxfordshire which are key to understanding these issues. Our reports make use of the latest open data available through Local Insight. As we develop our insights, we will also share key pieces of research from local and national sources that we have commissioned or we think are of interest.

From the Knowledge Hub pages, you can still access these news stories – where we keep you up to date with what is happening at OCF and locally with our partners. These regular updates include stories about grant making, groups we have supported, our work on key projects and news from our donors.

As well as showing the small number of our own events, the calendar highlights where the team can be found out and about attending or presenting at key events in the charitable sector locally.

Our blog is the place to read read the thoughts of the OCF team on how we work, what’s trending in the news – locally, nationally and internationally – including the latest research and how this relates to Oxfordshire.

So keep coming back to the OCF website to keep up to date with all of our work and share our insight and research recommendations through the OCF Knowledge Hub.
