Would you like to support Street Champions in Headington?
Headington Action has secured funding for a part-time role
Street champions set up by Oxford Together have been highly effective in supporting and empowering street communities. If someone has been shielding during the pandemic it’s probably a local street champion who has arranged for someone to do their shopping. In Headington, the charity Headington Action (HA) is keen to develop and maintain the street champion network working alongside Oxford Together and we have secured some funding to employ someone part-time on a contract basis to do this.
The job will entail supporting existing street champions and to recruit more people to fulfil this really important role. This would be for an average of one day a week though not necessarily all in one day. You would be liaising with Street Champions and Oxford Together. It will also entail working within one of HA’s project teams, called Connected Communities, which was formed to reduce social isolation and increase community support in Headington.
The job isn’t just for the duration of the pandemic, HA want to make Headington one of the most friendly and supportive places anyone might choose to live.
