About us 

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.

We work with Abingdon & Whitney College, Carefree, Enrych and Thomas Franks to offer a range of support services for carers.

We are affiliated with Carers UK – the UK’s only national membership charity for carers. Carers UK is both a supportive community and a movement for change.

We make your caring journey more manageable by offering advice and support to enable you to navigate what can be a confusing system. Armed with knowledge and confidence we can tackle things together.
