Wantage Independent Advice Centre LogoThe 2018 White Horse Half Marathon will Support the Wantage Independent Advice Centre.

The centre was founded in 1971, with a small group of volunteers providing information services and advice.  Over the years the organisation has developed into the Advice Centre they have today, with over 110 volunteers including nearly 60 volunteer drivers and 30 volunteer good neighbours.  In 2011 they expanded their premises to provide more space and a more appropriate environment, including meeting room facilities.

The Good Neighbour scheme was founded in April 2009, providing volunteers to help with those simple tasks that elderly or vulnerable clients find too difficult.

They operate a volunteer transport scheme from Monday to Friday, covering Wantage, Grove and outlying villages – driving clients to Day Centres, surgeries, hospitals, shops, to visit friends and many more locations!

Their Advice services cover a wide range of topics, including debt management, benefit entitlements, employment rights, consumer rights and many more.
