OSJ’s focus is to bring world-class musicians and music-making into the community in meaningful ways. In addition to concert programming that brings large numbers of people together for shared musical experiences, OSJ routinely delivers more intimate performances in unusual spaces, such as the Ashmolean Museum and importantly in Oxfordshire schools and care homes for autistic children (often 4 per week to over 100 children a day) and special needs adults. We do this work in collaboration with the associated charity Music for Autism, by bringing a small team of musicians with John Lubbock (Music Director) as animateur to give short concerts to each class, sometimes to the school as a whole. Such concerts are hardly one-way events, but rather students are encouraged to engage with the musicians, move, sing, and even sometimes conduct the group. For everyone, but especially for the more severely handicapped children and adults, the live music experience enhances their lives like nothing else. The best evidence of value are the testimonials from the carers. We aim to adopt this kernel and broaden the orchestra’s engagement with the community. It is early days but projects include ‘the Compassion project’, ‘OSJ Engage’ (haiku and watercolours), and ‘OSJ Everywhere!’
Make Space Oxford 19 Feb 2018
Local community groups, start-ups and mature third sector organisations are connected and supported through a new, dedicated coordination role & hub to find affordable, secure and appropriate work space and meeting spaces in Oxford. Concurrently, these organisations, alongside housing support agencies and community groups in ‘Homeless Voice Oxford’, offer mutual aid, undertake collaboration - including through digital innovation - and use their collective influence to engage stakeholders (Eg University and Colleges, local authorities and businesses) to create much needed education, training, temporary shelter and employment outcomes for homeless individuals and those vulnerable to homelessness. The initiative is supported and championed by Oxford City Counc
This grant will be spent on delivering three specialist Nurturing Programme Family Links parenting courses specifically aimed at ex-offenders both in custody and also for those in the community. Each parenting course will run for a total of 12 weeks including a pre-delivery and evaluation session. The parenting course is a Nurturing Programme designed to help parents who are ex-offenders to manage their feelings and behaviour while becoming more positive and nurturing in their relationships with their children and with each other. Learning modules will include giving praise, discipline, family rules, personal power and self-esteem, communicating feelings and stages of child development. For Aspire's clients, who come from very deprived backgrounds and may not have had positive experiences of parenting growing up, these courses are invaluable to break unhealthy cycles of behaviour. We expect that 24 ex-offenders will attend these courses (8 learners per course) and once completed, they will benefit from greater emotional literacy in parenting skills designed to greatly strengthen family life and protect children from future antisocial behaviour. The indirect beneficiaries of this project will be in excess of 96 people.
Grant to Oasis Aquila Housing 12 Feb 2018
Oasis Aquila Housing (OAH) is a homelessness charity based in Gateshead which has run a bond scheme for the last six years. Staff from the bond scheme try to build a close relationship with the landlord, ensuring that the properties are of a reasonable standard. Staff from OAH will also help the tenant to maintain the tenancy. The Bond scheme was originally set up with funding from a national scheme run by Crisis with funding from the Big Lottery Fund. It is on target to set up 40 tenancies this year. The grant to OAH is to enable them to continue operating the scheme ibn Gateshead, increasing its reach. OAH intend to support 50 people into a sustainable tenancy as a result.
