Carers Centre receives a cash boost

West Oxfordshire District Council has awarded a grant of 750 to the North and West Oxfordshire
Carers Centre.

The Centre is an independent charity providing free information, advice and support to those looking after someone who because of illness, disability or frailty cannot manage without help. It also provides respite for young carers through its Young Carers Project, which offers leisure opportunities and family liaison
services.

Cabinet Member for Finance, Cllr Mary Neale said, "The work that is carried out by the Centre is of tremendous importance to the community. I am delighted that the Council has been able to award a grant to help with its running costs for a further year."

This grant will help the centre to carry on providing information, advice and assistance to Carers in the area and operate support groups in Witney, Carterton, Chipping Norton and Woodstock.
