This is the place to make contact with other communities and individuals, share problems and find solutions, and discuss new ideas.
We know from feedback that networking sessions are among CFO’s most popular and useful events. People like finding out what’s happening elsewhere and getting to know others. What’s also become clear with Covid-19 is that while people have been doing fantastic work it has been very demanding. This makes it all the more important to find new ways to connect.
That’s why we’ve set up OxBuzz – to offer a virtual support and discussion space to share information and support peer to peer reflection. Anyone can read posts made on the forum but if you want to make a post or join a discussion you have to register.
Community shops - challenges, successes, future plans!
Community Shops have played a vital local role during the pandemic. Volunteers have supported COVID-19 support strategies while helping make sure that those in most need have access to food and necessities. We know that this vital work is challenging, time consuming and often tiring.
The Oxfordshire network of community shops is a wonderful, mutually supportive group. We've met virtually in the last few months and will do so again. But we would love this forum to be a go-to place to discuss concerns, challenges, and collectively discuss and solve issues.
