Our vision and statement of intent

Date: Thursday, 16th Mar 2023 | Category: General

We are delighted to launch the Oxfordshire Strapline for how we work with Children & Families as developed by you. This is our commitment to how we want to work together to help children, young people and families.

Please rise to the Big Challenge from OSCB and the Children’s Trust Board to make sure we are all making a difference to outcomes for children, young people and families in how we work together and behave.

Please use the strapline, together or individually as appropriate to your organisation and where possible in meetings, relevant strategies, presentations, policy documents, training materials, resources etc and promote it at all levels in your organisation.

The Big Challenge is how we now all use this and model it in a meaningful way to change our practice and really have an impact on the lived experience of children, young people and families. This represents a key part of how we hold ourselves and each other to account in how we work together with children and families.
