The Oakland Foundation

The Oakland Foundation was formed in 2012 by Redditch family business Oakland International after statistics showed that three wards in Redditch featured in a list of the ten most deprived wards in Worcestershire. Two more Redditch wards just missed the top 10. All five regions have more than 20% of children living in poverty.

The Foundation’s primary objective is to relieve the needs of children in Redditch and Bromsgrove and the surrounding area who are disadvantaged by reason of their financial hardship or other disadvantage. The Foundation focuses on activities based in the areas of education, sport, health and nutrition.

The Oakland Foundation was officially opened by Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal on 28th June 2013 at the premises of the key commercial sponsor Oakland International.
