Do you Care? So do we …


Do you provide unpaid help to a family member, friend or neighbour, to help them with everyday living?

Do you look after someone who has a long-term illness or disability or who is elderly or frail?

Do you have a child with special needs?

Do you help a relative or friend who is about to be discharged from hospital?

Are you under 18 and caring for or helping to care for someone in your family, who has a long-term illness or is disabled?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you would benefit from contacting South and Vale Carers.

South and Vale Carers is a specialist charity, set up in 1994, that supports unpaid carers living in South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse District Council areas. South and Vale Carers provides a personal, professional and confidential service offering a wide range of advice, information, and practical and emotional support, visiting you in your own home at a time to suit you.
