What our partners say
At Active Oxfordshire, working with a wide range of partners from across health, statutory, voluntary, community, education and business sectors is at the heart of everything we do. We know that we are stronger together, and greatly value the relationships that we are able to create and connect. Our partners share a common goal: to challenge inequalities and fight inactivity, to create a more healthy, equal and active Oxfordshire.
Here's what our partners say about working with Active Oxfordshire:
"We have all been delighted to be part of the project and have been so surprised and pleased at the response in terms of donations of bikes and money. It has been such a great thing for Cyclox to get involved in and it has expanded our horizons hugely, both in terms of our connections (with you in particular) and with our strategic direction once we become a charity."
Alison Hill, Chair of Cyclox
"We are really encouraged by how the FAST programme has been received by families across Cherwell and how many are taking advantage of a range of physical activities on their doorstep. The programme is all about making things easier for families to access physical activity and the recent numbers and feedback show that this is happening.
A big reason for the success of the programme is the collaboration of partners working together from making referrals through to evaluating and offering incentives for families. Working in partnership with Active Oxfordshire has enabled the programme to be scaled up along with providing great insight and knowledge. This partnership is so important as we aim to keep families active in light of COVID -19 and make sure the most vulnerable families are able to access physical activity."
Tom Gubbins, Cherwell District Council
"Access Sport feel privileged to be part of Active Reach. By working with the partnership we can positively impact so many more residents than if we were to work alone. Our bicycle and sports equipment library will enable young disabled people and young people facing severe disadvantages, to access sports equipment and games. The library will remove financial, travel and space barriers to exercise. Families will be able to choose equipment for themselves that best suit their interests, abilities and space at home. We can't wait to get started!"
Hayley Sanders, Access Sport - part of the Active Reach consortia, funded by Sport England's Tackling Inequalities Fund
