ADHD Oxfordshire is a small voluntary organisation founded by Mary Austin in 2010 as a response to the lack of understanding and services for her ADHD son, even after his eventual diagnosis at the age of 24.
We are an independent information, support and coaching service .
In February 2012, a Support Group was set up and meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month except August, and on the last Tuesday of each month except December.
