Oxfordshire Family Support Network

The Oxfordshire Family Support Network is run by and for family carers of people with learning disabilities (both children and adults).

They provide independent information, advice and support to family carers of people of all ages with learning disabilities.

They also provide information, advice and training to professionals involved with people with learning disabilities.
