"The growing relationship between Univ and the voluntary sector in Oxford has already led to individuals achieving employment. Using the resources of the colleges to do good in the city, whilst generating a financial return, can only be a good thing." – Stuart Waddington, Stepping Stones
Stepping Stones and Univ
Stepping Stones takes funds from those who have funds and wish to invest ethically in order to provide interim housing opportunities for previously homeless people. While charitable and ethical, the charity provides a healthy return on investment which is competitive with the returns provided elsewhere in the market. Univ aspires to introduce Stepping Stones to colleges and organisations throughout Oxford with the aim of generating sound financial and social investment in the local community on a wider basis; something we are pressed to do by successive intakes of students.
