OxFSN - Upcoming Family Carer Events

OxFSN Upcoming Events

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 the Embolden Project

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

We are holding two upcoming events covering issues that many family carers have raised in our discussions.
