Oxford Inclusive Economy Partnership

Project: Community Impact Lab

OIEP is an exciting organisation with a broad range of stakeholders that is striving to make Oxfordshire more just, equal, fairer, and sustainable.  One of their key working groups is around inclusive employment. Community Hubs play a critical role in providing much needed societal services throughout Oxfordshire. Key research questions for this joint project include:

  • What is working and what are the challenges?  
  • Is there an urban and rural divide? How is this playing out?  
  • How can hubs best support the drive for inclusive employment in the county with a particular focus on how they can best serve people facing barriers to employment such as veterans, refugees, and prison leavers? 

Our Lab partnership will assist OIEP research and plan how community hubs can most successfully promote inclusive employment.
