Oakington and Westwick Hardship Fund

The Oakington and Westwick Hardship Fund was launched in April 2021 to provide support to local residents who are short of money. Within a few weeks, more than £1,000 was raised and a small team was formed to manage the Fund and respond to requests for help. The team keeps all personal details completely confidential. They respond to all requests and can signpost to other agencies.  

 The Hardship Team operates within procedures agreed by OWN, the Parish Council and Community Association, with financial control mechanisms. The bank account is managed by the OWN Treasurer.
