Carers Advice

Carers UK

Carers Oxfordshire is a partnership between the charities Action for Carers (Oxfordshire) and Rethink Mental Illness. Action for Carers (Oxfordshire) is an independent charity, established in 2012.

We provide support and information to adult carers in Oxfordshire. Whether you’re taking on a caring role for the first time, or have many years of experience, we are here to help you.

We offer personalised service because we understand that no two caring situations are the same. We support Adult Carers, Parent Carers and Sandwich Carers. If you are 18 or older and care for someone who lives in Oxfordshire we can help.

Carers Oxfordshire has been commissioned by Oxfordshire Council and works with the support of Oxfordshire Health & Social Care.
