Partner Testimonials

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!
