16th Nov 2023

Carers Oxfordshire are offering up to £150 towards any part-time and evening course from Abingdon & Witney College. The offer is available for carers aged 19 and over who support an Oxfordshire resident.

Abingdon & Witney College work with Carers Oxfordshire to offer a series of free workshops and courses designed to help carers improve their wellbeing and gain confidence in caring for someone at home.

Carers Oxfordshire are now extending their support, offering an increase in additional funding for carers to get involved in a variety of courses run across the College.
