Base 33 is a youth centre located in the Oxfordshire town of Witney. The centre provides support to young people with a wide range of needs, giving them the hope and opportunities they need to succeed. They run a variety of services including outreach youth work, mentoring for young people, support for young people with drug, alcohol and substance misuse issues, preparing young people for job seeking, supporting young homeless people and mental health and wellbeing support for young people.

In February 2016 Music In Detention worked with OYAP Trust to run a participatory music making project at Base 33 connecting young people in the Witney area with detainees being held at Campsfield House Immigration Removal Centre. The project produced a fantastic CD of music entitled ‘World Upon My Shoulder’ created by the detainees and the young people, both independently and in collaboration.
