Voices of Experience & Carers’ Voice

Are you looking after someone who has a long term illness or impairment? Would you like to use your experience and give your views?

Action for Carers  (linked to Age UK Oxfordshire)  is gathering feedback from carers across the county and we would really like to hear from you.
Your views may help influence the way in which services and support for carers are planned, delivered and improved in Oxfordshire.

Please can you let us know, what helps you in your role and what are your frustrations or difficulties? 

Trends and themes will then be identified by the Carer’s Voice Panel, which exists to discuss issues that affect carers and lobby for improved services and support.

Please send any responses to:
