Charity description

Flexicare logo
For over 30 years we have been providing a babysitting service for families with a severely disabled child, within a 10-mile radius of Oxford City Centre, plus Wantage and Grove.  Care is provided in a family's home by a small core of experienced staff and a team of trained volunteers.

We will sit, when a family wants 2-3 times a month, for up to about 4 hours.  One of our families described us as providing "... person-centered care to suit family and child; it's not just protocols and processes"

We sit for all sorts of reasons, from shopping or a night out, to dental appointments, or spending quality time with siblings.  As our founder Sue Kenrick said  "The aim was never to change the world, but to make that one week, perhaps that one day, a little bit easier for that one family"

Thank you for supporting us, despite keeping our costs to an absolute minimum, we still need to raise over £50,000 a year to keep our service going.  Every penny really does make a difference to our families.
