Partnerships

South Oxfordshire District Council's statement of strategic intent is 'to work in partnership to maintain and improve the quality of life in South Oxfordshire'.

What is partnership working?

Put simply a partnership is two or more organisations working together towards common interests and goals.

Partnership working has many benefits including:

  • Sharing resources to achieve common goals
  • Access to ideas and skills of others
  • Support to maintain momentum and commitment
  • Learning from seeing others' perspective
  • Ability to secure funding that requires partnership working
  • Deliver an end result which is satisfactory to a wide range of people

Partnerships in South Oxfordshire

The former South Oxfordshire Partnership (SOP) produced 'Our place, our future: the sustainable community strategy for South Oxfordshire.' The Partnership is now a networking group rather than a formal strategic partnership, known as the South Oxfordshire Networking Group.
