What our partners say
We have all been delighted to be part of the (Bikes for Key Workers) 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 initiative for Cyclox to get involved in and it has expanded our horizons hugely, both in terms of our connections (with Active Oxfordshire in particular) and with our strategic direction now we have 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.
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!

In 2019 and 2020, we went out to partners to ask for their opinions about the quality of our partnerships, value and impact. This was an incredibly useful process and helps us to continually develop and improve as an organisation. We'd like to thank everyone who took part in the process - you can read the survey reports below.
