OX7 operates in the heart of the community, from its base at Chipping Norton Theatre in Goddard’s Lane.
We aim to develop and sustain working partnerships with local businesses, schools, colleges, local authorities and residents to ensure the hub builds strong community roots and offers young people an authentic sense of belonging.
It’s about offering individually tailored support, advice, advocacy and guidance to help them overcome the barriers they face.
“What makes the digital hub unique is the fact that not only will these youngsters gain valuable life, digital and general workplace skills, they’ll be encouraged to use them within the safe, supportive context of a local town team”, says ECN Chairman and OX7 project lead Shaun Fagan (pictured above).
“We’re here to support them every step of the way, offering them a range of great opportunities to play a real part in their community, help them get their lives back on track and become truly work-ready.”
