Towcester Digital Advice Hub is an exciting new pilot project run by Citizens Advice North Oxon & South Northants, in collaboration with Central & East Northamptonshire Citizens Advice.

The Towcester Digital Advice Hub is located at 'The Forum' and is open every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, from 10am until 2pm.

A team of friendly and patient volunteers have been trained to support members of the public 1-2-1 to access information online using the national Citizens Advice website.  They are looking to recruit more volunteers to join the Digital Hub team, so if you are able to spare 4 hours per week, 10-2 on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday, they would love to hear from you!
