This event is part of the Embolden 2 project run by Oxfordshire Family Support Network (OxFSN) and funded through The National Community Lottery. OxFSN is a small charity run by families for families who have relatives with a learning disability and/or autism.
The aim of Embolden 2 is to provide older family carers with the support they need to help them plan for the future for their family member with a learning disability and /or autism.
Many families worry about what will happen to their loved one when they are no longer able to provide care and support for them. Where will they go? Who will provide the support? Will their siblings have the information they need to know what to do? OxFSN aims to work closely with older family carers to put a clear plan in place so that when your family member needs that future support, the detailed information that others need to know is readily available.
They plan to do this by holding some larger information events for all family carers on main topics including finances, supported accommodation etc. Alongside these events, they will be running some smaller group coffee and chat sessions across the county. These meetings will enable you to capture and record through person-centred planning that information about your family member that you know so well because you care for them every day but will also be important to others, including siblings when they need to step into that role. They want to help you think about all the things you need to have in place regarding wills and trusts, money management and court of protection. They will work with you to develop a crisis care plan in case of unexpected emergencies.
OxFSN will be working closely with Oxfordshire County Council’s adult social care department, Oxford Health Learning Disability teams and support providers across Oxfordshire to ensure that they are aware of the numbers and the needs of people needing future support.
