Our welfare staff are on hand five days a week Monday to Friday, 9am to 4pm to provide advice and support to anyone who calls us for help. Our number is 01865 725595.
Whether it be technical advice on a piece of equipment or just for someone to talk to, you can be assured of a warm friendly response from the team at OAB.
