Information & Advice

In Abingdon-on-Thames there are still a range of places where you can get information or advice from a friendly face, not just a computer screen or a phone service!

Whether its bus times and opening times, help with family problems or some information about the town or the local services, there are a number of organisations you can turn to in the town centre. Read the descriptions below to see which ones will be of most use to you.

A Safe Places scheme operates in all local towns. Look for a yellow and orange sticker when you or a friend or relative needs to find a friendly face - for instance if someone is feeling vulnerable, lost, unwell.

Health and emergencies are dealt with in a different section - click here to get emergency numbers.
