Launch of Live Well Oxfordshire

When you or your loved one need support or want to find new opportunities, it can be hard to know where to start looking.

Live Well Oxfordshire is intended to be a single place that you can come to look at services that could support you or your loved one, whether that’s with care, staying healthy or finding education and leisure opportunities.

If you’re not sure what you are looking for, you can just browse through the different types of services to see if there’s anything that might help and get ideas. If you do know what you want, you can simply search for what you’re looking for.

What sort of information can I find on Live Well Oxfordshire?

Live Well Oxfordshire is a directory of services for adults in Oxfordshire. The directory includes the following types of services:

  • Looking after someone
  • Living at home
  • Health, recovery and wellbeing
  • Care homes and housing with support
  • Life events
  • Money matters
  • Working and learning
  • Getting out and about
The directory will provide information about each service, such as:
  • What the service does
  • Who the service is aimed at
  • The location
  • Contact details and further information
  • Where is the information coming from?

Oxfordshire County Council has set up Live Well Oxfordshire in partnership with Age UK and Affinity Works. We’re working with the organisations and providers listed in the directory as far as possible to make sure the information is accurate and up to date.

Can’t find what you’re looking for?

If you’re looking for something and can’t find it on Live Well Oxfordshire, or know of a service that we don’t have listed, please let us know by suggesting a service. We want to make the directory as comprehensive as possible, so we welcome any suggestions that you have.

PopUp Business School aims to start over 50 new businesses in Didcot

Revolutionary start-up training company, PopUp Business School aims to start over 50 new businesses in Didcot.
 The PopUp Business School will be popping up at The Orchard Shopping Centre next month and are inviting aspiring entrepreneurs to attend the sessions to learn how to start or grown their own business.
 The school is working in partnership with and are co-funded by Hammerson Plc (owners of the shopping centre), Soha Housing, South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Councils and The European Social Fund.
 The week-long, free workshop, which starts on Monday 19 March at The Orchard Shopping Centre, will teach local residents from around the South Oxfordshire area everything they need to know from; how to start a business without any money, how to generate sales from social media to making a website without any technical skills.
Soha’s Chief Exec Richard Peacock said, “I’m really proud that Soha is a community based social business. This is a great step forward for our Launchpad project, which has already supported many local people to gain valuable experience and skills.”
Councillor John Cotton, Leader of South Oxfordshire District Council, said, “We are enthusiastic partners in this innovative project.  The PopUp school is part of our ongoing commitment to help new and existing businesses in and round Didcot Garden Town and Science Vale to grow and succeed.”
Since 2011, PopUp Business School has been travelling around the United Kingdom teaching aspiring entrepreneurs how to start their own businesses. However, unlike other enterprise support companies their advice is the polar opposite of the status quo. They don’t believe in business plans, financial projections or loans. Instead they get their stu-dents starting off with sales and proving a demand in their businesses first.
