Oxfordshire County Council have a vision of ‘Thriving communities for everyone in Oxfordshire’  – a place where people want to live and work and be part of something different. To achieve our vision, we will:

  • listen to residents so we can continuously improve our services and provide value for money
  • strive to give every child a good start in life, and protect everyone from abuse and neglect
  • enable older and disabled people to live independently. We care for those in greatest need
  • help people live safe, healthy lives and play an active part in their community
  • provide services that enhance the quality of life in our communities, and protect the local environment
  • support a thriving local economy by improving transport links to create jobs and homes for the future

Oxfordshire must continue to be a great place to live and work, with more people enjoying a higher quality of life. Like any vision, it’s a long-term ambition rather than a quick fix.
