Need help in a financial crisis? A scheme has been launched by Oxfordshire County Council to support residents who are either in, or at risk of being in crisis, are in need of immediate help and have no other source of financial support available to them. The Resident Support Scheme will help with short-term basic living costs such as food and credit for gas/electric prepayment meters.

West Oxfordshire is opening its doors again this year to provide inclusive, non-judgmental spaces where everyone can expect a warm welcome, free tea/coffee and an opportunity to chat.

The British Heart Foundation is offering a free, interactive and easy-to-use CPR training course.
