Survey to Plan for the future Health and Care needs in Wantage and Grove (OX12)

OX12 Map


The OX12 Stakeholder Reference Group, covering Wantage, Grove and the surrounding villages, has been set up to support a project that will identify the health, care and wellbeing needs of local people and plan future health and care provision in the OX12 area.

The group consists of members of the public, patient representatives and local councils working with NHS Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust and the wider health and care system to ensure the views of the locality are taken into account. Future health, care and wellbeing services will be based on the needs of the community and will recognise the services and assets that already exist.

The first step in this process is to find out what services (NHS, Social Care local authority and voluntary) are currently being used, where those services are provided from and where people have to travel to access them. This information will be used to help shape the way services are planned and delivered to more effectively meet people’s health and care needs in the future.

Mapping your community assets

A community asset (or community resource) is anything that can be used to improve the quality of community life. And this means:

  • It can be a person -- Residents can be empowered to realise and use their abilities to build and transform the community. The stay-at-home mum or dad who organises a playgroup. The informal neighbourhood leader. The firefighter who risks his life to keep the community safe. These are all community assets.
  • It can be a physical structure or place -- a school, hospital, church, library, recreation centre, and social club. It could be a town landmark or symbol. It might also be an unused building that could house a community hospice, or a second floor room ideal for community meetings. Or it might be a public place that already belongs to the community -- a park, a wetland, or other open space.
  • It can be a community service that makes life better for some or all community members - public transportation, early childhood education centre, community recycling facilities, cultural organisation.
  • It can be a business that provides jobs and supports the local economy.

You and everyone else in the community are potential community assets.
