The Agnes Smith Advice Centre has been providing free advice and representation to people in the local community for more than 40 years. We have developed and expanded over the years, from a largely voluntary and informal organisation into an independent advice centre that is professional and effective in its work but firmly rooted in the local community.
Blackbird Leys is a residential estate on the southern edge of Oxford. It was built in 1958, to provide housing for workers at the Cowley car plant. In the late 1980/90s a further housing estate in Greater Leys was developed. The population of the two estates is now approximately 15,000, making the Leys one of the largest housing estates in Europe.
