Do you know of any unpaid carers in Horley?

‘This year the High Sheriff of Oxfordshire is Mrs Sarah Taylor.  She has chosen to make her theme for the year the plight of unpaid carers in Oxfordshire.  Apparently, across the county there are very many people who have been forced to give up work in order to care for someone else.  She is working with a group called Carers Oxfordshire, whose role is to provide support to people working as unpaid carers.

The parish council is not aware of anyone in this position, but if there is and they would like to speak to Carers Oxfordshire, if they contact me I will put them in touch.’ David Marriott
