em-bold-en Big Coffee Conversations (Bicester)

October 3, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Oxfordshire Family Support Network, a small charity run by families for families who have relatives with learning disabilities, have been funded by Comic Relief to run a new project em-bold-en. They are holding a series of meetings for families who care for adults with learning disabilities across Oxfordshire.

The aim of the project is to give a strong voice to family carers and to influence and hold decision makers to account within health and social care services.

Who is it for?

The project is aimed at families who care for adults with learning disabilities across Oxfordshire, whether they are living with you at home, or in supported living or residential care. It is also aimed at brothers and sisters, or other family relatives who may be involved in supporting your relative with a learning disability and may be sharing the caring with parents. We especially want to reach out to older family carers.

So if you have concerns about possible cuts to your care packages, anxious about proposed changes to services, worried about asking for a reassessment, struggling to find supported living or concerned about the future and want to ensure a secure good life for your loved ones who have a learning disability – OxFSN want to help.
