Community Insight Profiles
In October 2022, Community First Oxfordshire was commissioned by Cherwell District Council to undertake a community insight deep dive across three Banbury Wards: Grimsbury and Hightown, Cross and Neithrop and Ruscote.
This work has been part of a wider community profile project by Oxfordshire County Council Public Health team working with the District Councils and local communities across 10 areas in Oxfordshire which include areas ranked in the 20 per cent most deprived in England. These areas experience health inequalities and are at risk of poor health. Three of these areas are in Banbury.
The profiles are designed to capture and understand the knowledge in these communities to better inform, with that community input, how to improve health, wellbeing and aspiration, including our relationship with food and healthy eating.
The reports were prepared based on community involvement through a combination of focus groups, individual interviews and community surveys with the support of community groups, organisations and agencies. The reports will help Cherwell District Council, Oxfordshire County Council and others to plan better for the future and develop services and projects to improve provision.
