Ollerton and District Economic Forum (ODEF) is a charitable company that is working to regenerate the former coal mining community of Ollerton and surrounding areas. It was formed by local people at the time of the pit closure in 1993 when there were significant job losses in all the traditional industries, including textiles. ODEF’s defined geographical area is North Nottinghamshire.
ODEF provides a variety of public services including training, employment and community support in the form of projects and action teams.
“ODEF will work toward the economic regeneration and diversification of the local community and thereby assist in the development of a viable and sustainable local community”
