Opportunity Bucks

What the programme hopes to achieve

The ambition for the Opportunity Bucks programme is to improve opportunities for all.

We want to make sure the people living in the 10 identified wards can access the same level of opportunity that people in other parts of the county benefit from.

Everyone in Buckinghamshire should have the opportunity to achieve:

  • a good quality job, that pays enough money to support a decent quality of life
  • good standard of attainment and skills
  • learning and career progression
  • good mental and physical wellbeing and independent living
  • a decent, warm home and good quality food
  • involvement in shaping their community, with strong social connections
  • a feeling of being safe where they live
  • pride in where they live
