Project Scoop facilitates press release for local children centre campaigners

CREATE’s “Project Scoop” supported the writing and distribution of a press release that has helped highlight the campaign to save Oxfordshire’s Children’s Centres. This was accompanied by a Video News Release and is part of a wider project documenting the impact of austerity on local communities. Project Scoop continues to research stories related to changes in community facilities in Oxfordshire and is supported both by researchers at Oxford Brookes University and Film Oxford’s Production Group.

Please get in contact if you have strong stories that should be told.
