Carers Oxfordshire is a free service which offers information, advice and support to anyone aged 18 and over, who is looking after an adult, and living in Oxfordshire. http://www.carersoxfordshire.org.uk/cms/

If you are a carer for someone you may be entitled to a carers allowance, this will need to be assessed by the local authority. For more information or to request a carers assessment: https://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/residents/social-and-health-care/adult-social-care/looking-after-someone/carers-assessment

For people who look after for care for a child or young adult with autism there is a charity run by parents called OASIS. http://oasisonline.org.uk/
