Flexicare is a lifeline

Flexicare provides free, flexible babysitting for families with a disabled child. As a charity, not a statutory agency, we can offer services led by the needs of our families.

Flexicare operates within a ten-mile distance of Oxford city centre, as well as the areas of Wantage and Grove. Anyone can refer a child for registration. Children must be under the age of 12 at the time of referral.

Once a child has been referred, two of our coordinators will arrange a visit to assess the child's needs and determine whether the child meets our registration criteria. Children who meet our criteria generally have issues with mobility, communication or safety awareness.

Contact details:

Refer a family, ask a question, offer to help - we would like to hear from you.

Flexicare and Riding for Disabled (New Yatt)

Riding for Disabled (New Yatt)

New Yatt Riding for the Disabled

It's what you CAN do that counts

New Yatt Riding for the Disabled is an incorporated charity based at North Leigh, West Oxfordshire. Since 1984 a dedicated team of RDA trained Coaches and 50+ volunteer helpers have provided regular riding lessons for the local disabled community. We operate from a dedicated 24 acre site with an indoor school. Our ponies and horses are carefully chosen for their temperament, size and ability to work with our riders.

We are run by unpaid volunteers and, thanks to fundraising efforts including charitable grants and donations from our local community, we continue to offer affordable riding to our participants, currently £8 per 30 minute session.

Many of our riders have a physical disability or learning difficulties, some may have both. Each session will cater for 2 or 3 small groups of riders of similar age or riding ability but all our riders are encouraged to achieve their personal riding objectives at their own pace.

Riding is widely recognised as an excellent form of therapy - building self-confidence, improving concentration, co-ordination and balance, providing recreation and sport. Best of all, riding is FUN and our riders regularly tell us how much they enjoy coming to New Yatt RDA.

Individual and Business Sponsorship Opportunities

We welcome specific or long term sponsorship opportunities with local businesses and organisations and can tailor a scheme to suit your circumstances.

2020 Charity Supported

The Lord’s Taverners aim is to improve the prospects of disadvantaged and disabled young people through sport and recreation. We’re achieving this by building links between communities, encouraging groups to play sport together and providing vital facilities that enable young people to fulfil their potential.

Throughout the country, our programmes are breaking down barriers, empowering young people and helping to build crucial life skills. We’re laying the foundations for a positive future and building stronger communities across the UK.

In addition, we provide minibuses, sports wheelchairs, play spaces and sensory rooms that enable disabled young people to access a wider range of experiences and environments that enable them to develop and grow.

We measure success on the impact we’ve had on young people’s lives, not just within the game of cricket, but also at school, work, in their local community and at home with family.

This year we have invested £4.2m in cricket programmes, new equipment and facilities across the UK, ensuring that we continue to have a life changing impact on disadvantaged and disabled young people’s lives and their communities.




Table cricket is an adapted form of inclusive cricket, played on a table tennis table, aimed at young people with a range of disabilities who are less able to play other forms of cricket. It can be played competitively or for fun, both in an educational or community setting.
