The service is for older adults living in Oxgangs and surrounding areas who may be:

- Trips out to local attractions will take place at a cost of £5 to cover transport.

Who can use Oxgangs Care?

We can accept wheelchair users, but due to limited transport space we can only have two people in each group who is a wheelchair user.
