Meet Our New Community Shareholder Groups

At the Low Carbon Hub, we work with community groups across Oxfordshire which have a focus on low carbon and sustainability actions. Many of these groups join the Low Carbon Hub and become CIC (Community Interest Company) community shareholders, giving them access to advice, support and grant funding.

Over the past few months, we have been excited to welcome seven low carbon community groups as Low Carbon Hub CIC community shareholders.

Our new groups are

Watlington Climate Action – A group for residents, businesses, and organisations in Watlington and surrounding areas to discuss issues, impacts and solutions around climate change.

Greener Henley – A group working to unite the local community through positive ways they can make a change together and fight climate change.

Henley Climate Emergency Working Group – News and information from Henley Town Council’s Climate Emergency Working Group. Supporting residents to reduce the town’s carbon footprint. Solar panels, electric vehicles, home insulation and much more.

Hook Norton Community Land Trust – Hook Norton Community Land Trust (HNCLT) is a not for profit Community Benefit Society that was set up in July 2019 and registered with the Financial Conduct Authority and is part of the National Community Land Trust Network. It was formed to develop a small group of affordable, sustainable homes that will be available to local people on a piece of overgrown land owned by Cherwell District Council (CDC). The homes will be based on the needs of the community already identified through extensive consultation and designed to encourage social contact and community spirit.

Deddington Environment Network (DEN) – A group of local, concerned residents and businesses, inspiring and implementing action on climate change.

They are working to be a force multiplier to drive their area to become Carbon Neutral by 2040.  DEN will create a forecastable plan to get there and will measure impact through a broad, baselined scorecard, that uses a range of indicators to measure impact.

Sustainable Duns Tew – Sustainable Duns Tew is a local group dedicated to enhancing knowledge and acting within our community to reduce waste and our carbon footprint.

Sustainable Woodstock – A group aiming to raise public awareness among the residents of Woodstock and beyond on the climate emergency, energy conservation, sustainable travel, waste reduction, recycling, biodiversity, sustainable economics, and respect for the planet. 

We’re really excited to welcome these groups to the Low Carbon Hub network and to see what they get up to as we look towards 2021!
