Kidlinks – The Kidlington Community Hub for Families with Children

On Saturday 15th July 2023 we re-launched the Kidlington Community Hub as ‘Kidlinks’ and now have our very own website at kidlinks.org.uk and a new Facebook page. Do visit there to see all our latest news. Or you can view the latest newsletter here.

As a charity, we are always tirelessly striving to bring in funding to keep the project sustainable and to enable us to grow. This initially saw the establishment of our first groups and the amazing St John’s garden installed, while the last year of fundraising has been especially successful, meaning we are now about to offer a SEN group for those with additional needs, regular Family Links parenting courses, plus more plans in the pipeline!

GREAT NEWS

The Hub has been chosen by Midcounties Co-op as the Kidlington & NW Oxford area Regional Community Charity fundraising partner again for 2024-25. And in 2022 the Hub won the Red Kite Day award for best parent and toddler group in Oxfordshire.

Congratulations to Rachel as lead children and family worker and to all volunteers and supporters.

We are able to continue this amazing work with the help of an army of amazing volunteers, charitable funding and grants.

What can you do to help?

Volunteering Would you like to become a volunteer with us? This could be on an ad-hoc basis or as regular as you like! Some of our amazing volunteers like to help out once a week, some once a month, and others in an emergency when we shout for help! If this is something you are interested in, please email Rachel at kidlington.communityhub@gmail.com

Funding Do you or someone you know have any expertise in writing funding applications, know of funding sources that we haven’t explored, or perhaps know of a local business that would like to sponsor us? If so, please do get in touch at kidlington.communityhub@gmail.com

Thank you so much for supporting us, and allowing us to support you and your family!
