JERICHO COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION
This accreditation was provided by Community Matters. In making the award the assessor concluded that “The Jericho Community Association is a welcoming, impressive and community focussed charity. It has limited staffing resources but is led by a highly experienced and locally well established group of community members.”
One of the advantages of putting in all the work to prepare for this assessment is that it has encouraged the officers and management committee to think more clearly about the many responsibilities involved in running the Community Centre, including child protection, fire risks, and health and safety. The relevant documents on these and other issues are available from the menu on the left.
Margaret Thatcher used to live here?
In her Oxford days, she lived at 12 Richmond Road. It is alleged she shared the house with two red-hot communists who lived on a diet of sausages. This may account for her later views on socialists and known dislike of sausages.
How religious we are?
In the 2001 Census, some 50% of Jericho residents said they were Christian, 2.2% Muslim, 1.9% Buddhist and 1.2% professed other religions, while 34% of people said they had no religion. In Oxford as a whole the proportion with no religion was 24%.
