What help can I get in Oxfordshire?

There are many organisations across Oxfordshire that can help provide care and support for older and vulnerable people in our community.

back to Homecare Planning

A good starting point is your Local Authority who can help give you sound advice on local services and also direct you to those organisations and people who can give you the specific help you may need:

Oxfordshire County Council

See also our article ‘What financial help can I get for my care and support?

CCGs (Clinical Commissioning Group) & NHS

As explained in our article ‘How much free help can you get from the NHS?’ your local CCG and GP can provide invaluable support to older people seeking to live independently at home.

Quality Care Commission Logo

Care Quality Commission (CQC)

Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. They check whether hospitals, care homes, GPs, dentists and services in our homes are meeting national standards. They do this by making inspections and publishing their findings which can be of value when comparing different providers. Unlike traditional domiciliary care organisations, TrustonTap is defined as an introductory agency by CQC, and does not need to register in the same way.

Citizens Advice

Citizens Advice

Citizens Advice is an excellent source of advice and support across a wide variety of topics. They have significant resources online but also offer confidential advice on the phone, on 034 4411 1444 and in person for free. They pride themselves on being impartial and independent.
