Part of the Community

As a major local employer and provider of health services across south east London and further afield, we aim to be a positive partner in our local communities and help people thrive.

In addition to providing healthcare to local people, we support our communities through:

Job opportunities – most of our staff live locally and we support the London Living Wage both for staff employed by us and our contractors. We offer volunteering and lived experience opportunities and have created a wide range of apprenticeship and work experience placements. Further information about employment opportunities can be found here.

Environmental sustainability – we are taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint and to become a carbon zero organisation. Further information about our Oxleas Green Plan can be found here.

Supporting local businesses and organisations – we work in partnership with many local businesses and organisations particularly in the voluntary sector.

Championing diversity and inclusivity – we are a leading organisation for promoting diversity and inclusion and we are taking action to make our services more accessible. Further information on our award-winning Building a Fairer Oxleas programme and our work to promote equity, can be found here.

Supporting veterans – we are a forces-friendly employer and ensure our services are accessible too. Our commitment has been recognised through the Armed Forces Covenant scheme who have given us the Gold award.

Keeping well – we work with partners to help local people stay well both physically and mentally. This includes taking part in community events, sharing information and health tips through our trust membership and supporting the South London Listens programme.
