  • Supported housing, employment and personal development guidance for people with experience of the criminal justice system in east Oxford, provided by Aspire since 2019
  • ‘Housing First’ projects in Cherwell, West Oxfordshire, South Oxfordshire and the Cotswolds, offering intensive support to individuals with experience of rough sleeping, in partnership with local councils and housing associations
  • The ‘Our House’ community housing project in partnership with Cottsway and West Oxfordshire District Council, to provide employment and independent living support for young adults in Witney, launched in 2020
  • The ‘Old Court House' housing-led project in Witney in collaboration with West Oxfordshire District Council, providing supported housing for up to 16 people
