Oxfordshire Family Support Network is a small charity run by families for families who have relatives with learning disabilities.
We are delighted to announce that Comic Relief have now funded us to run a new project, called Embolden.
What’s the project about?
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.
What are we aiming to do?
We are going through many changes and consultations at the moment and these are worrying times for families, so we want to work with you on the important issues that affect your lives as family carers by working together. For example, you may be worried about possible cuts to your care packages or proposed changes to the way services are being delivered, such as day care and respite or health services.
The project is aimed at families who care for adults with learning disabilities, 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 in this project, as we know that many of you worry about the future and want to ensure a secure good life for your loved ones who have a learning disability. We want to work with you on these important concerns.
