“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.”
Sue Kenrick, Founder – Flexicare
For over 30 years, our small, Oxfordshire-based charity has been providing babysitting services, free of charge, to families with a disabled child. Perhaps we can help you, or someone you know. Get in touch, refer a family, volunteer, donate.
Here’s Whats Coming Up
Flexicare is registered as a Domiciliary Care Agency by the Care Quality Commission and is supported by a grant from Oxfordshire County Council. The rest of our funding comes from fundraising by us and the local community. Our last CQC Inspection was November 2018 and Flexicare was rated as Good. Find a link to the associated report below.
It’s always good to give us a call and we can carry out a provisional phone assesement, once all the permissions have been recieved we can then move forward and arrange an assesment visit.
As each child is unique, it is not possible to give details of what conditions will meet our criteria. As a general rule of thumb, if a child is in mainstream school, even with support, they are unlikely to qualify for our service
We’re looking for a few GREAT VOLUNTEERS. Would you like to join us? We are always looking for volunteer babysitters. A background in nursing or work with disabled children is helpful, but not necessary. We’ll arrange any relevant training needed. You set the terms – once a week, once a month, or more frequently.
