Headington Parish Charity


The charity was formed on the 11 April 1996 from several smaller charities, which were amalgamated with the concurrence of the Charity Commission and given the current name.


The Charity’s aim is to relieve the poor in the ancient parish of Headington and, without prejudice to its generality, to have special regard to the needs of poor widows. 


There are seven trustees:  the Vicar of St Andrew’s Church, Old Headington (who acts as the Chair); one resident of the parish; up to three councillors representing Oxford City Council; and two Churchwardens of St Andrew’s Church, Old Headington.  The trustees are supported by a Secretary.
