Oxford Direct Services

Oxford Direct Services operates like a social enterprise.  We serve the community’s needs by providing services on behalf of the Council to more than 150,000 residents of Oxfordshire while also supplying services to local organisations and businesses. Since 2012, we’ve used the savings we generate from our commercial services to reinvest back into public services. That way, we can offset the cuts in Government grants and provide competitively priced, consumer-focused and environmentally responsible services to all.

The Children's Allotment is a new start-up  not-for-profit organisation and we received an excellent service which gave us great value for money from Direct Services. The team were friendly and gave helpful advice that went above and beyond. We were really pleased with the work they did.


Alice Hemming, The Children's Allotment

The team doing the work were a pleasure to be around and ended up being part of our opening event where they worked with our students to finish off the last bit of planting. 
Fitzwaryn School has a new area that is fit for use all year round and we would not have achieved this result without the hard work and dedication from ODS.
