Oxford Hub is a local charity working to build a more equal, resilient and connected Oxford. It runs volunteering programmes and collaborative projects that support people to thrive, participate in their community, and tackle inequality. Parent Power is an initiative led by local parent advocates working directly with families who are keen to lead changes in their own lives - helping themselves, their children and their communities to thrive. The parent advocates provide emotional and practical peer support and learning and development opportunities for parents.
In 2021, OFS trained the Parent Advocate team in story collecting, and they went on to collect one another’s stories about their experiences as parent advocates.
