Information and Advice

Our welfare staff are on hand five days a week Monday to Friday, 10am to 3pm to provide advice and support to anyone who calls us for help.  Our telephone 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.

Out of hours, there is an answerphone.  Just leave your name, contact number and a short message and we will call you back as soon as the office re-opens.
