Emergency Assistance

Assistance may be available to individuals at Oxford Community Trust; we have several procedures in place to provide clients in need with assistance they may require. This assistance is a discretionary service and our Co-ordinator at Oxford Community Trust has the sole responsibility to determine whether any grants/ assistance will be made.
