Working with others
Oxfordshire Inclusive Economy Partnership
Oxfordshire, despite its perceived affluence, global position and role as 1 of only 3 regions that contributes a surplus to the UK economy, is home to significant inequalities. 17 of 61 wards in Oxfordshire are the most deprived in England, with Northfield Brook in the 10% most deprived. The city of Oxford is the second most unequal place in the UK, in terms of income, housing affordability and life expectancy. Education attainment is below average affecting all generations. These problems extend beyond the city and exist across the whole of Oxfordshire.
The Oxfordshire Inclusive Economy Partnership brings together over a hundred organisations – employers, business, education, community groups and local government – this county-wide group is working to share knowledge, expertise and resources to address some of our greatest challenges.
The Oxfordshire Inclusive Economy Partnership is working together to create a more equal and sustainable region that creates opportunities and benefits for all people within the county. The Partnership is working to tackle some of our region’s biggest problems to create a fairer environment where everyone can contribute and share in our success.
Advanced Oxford is a member of the steering group for the Oxfordshire Inclusive Economy Partnership, represented by our Managing Director, Sarah Haywood.
