Started in January 2018, A Carer’s Journey is an initiative launched in partnership with Action for Carers Oxfordshire.
Are you aged 19 or above? Do you look after someone who would not be able to manage without your help? Are you interested in opportunities for learning and support in your local community?
If so, our three-hour workshops will provide an opportunity for Carers to access FREE sessions delivered in local communities. Watch this introduction to A Carer’s Journey from Sue Funge, Curriculum Manager at Oxfordshire Adult Learning:

Life After Caring
A short course that supports the practical and emotional challenges associated with change and life after caring.
We recommend the full journey but it’s up to you; you can choose whatever would be most helpful to you, whether it is a specific part of the journey or courses that are in your local area. Use the buttons below to find the most relevant courses to you:

How can I find out more?
Carers Oxfordshire is supporting people who are looking after a family member, friend or neighbour who could not manage without that help. Across the county there are around 62,000 carers and we work hard to reach those people who face a struggle. We offer advice and support for carers to help not only their physical and emotional well-being, but to help them to make informed decisions that have a positive, lasting influence on their lives. Find out more about Carers Oxfordshire on their website.
Please be sure to request this in advance as the process requires some time to set up. Unfortunately we are unable to support anyone who would need manual handling or personal care during the visit.
