Oxgangs Care is a locally based voluntary organisation and a charitable company limited by guarantee. It provides direct help and support through a range of services to isolated, vulnerable and disadvantaged people living in Oxgangs and surrounding areas. It is governed by a Board of Directors made up of local residents and service users.

The core business of Oxgangs Care is day care for older people. Our day services and clubs are designed to help people maintain their independence by assisting them in caring for themselves, help people maintain links with the community and avoid social isolation, and provide carers with an opportunity to have their own space and time by offering relief from the stress of caring and time for themselves.
