(Published on 19/04/2018)

If you’re looking for unsung heroes in Oxfordshire then you could do worse than read the story of Lindsay Howard-Dean and her mum Rosemary who share their daily home lives with people who need to be cared for.

Lindsay, 35, has been part of the county council’s Shared Lives scheme for more than a decade and shares her home at Christmas Common in the Chilterns with Mark who has a mild learning disability and Claire who has cerebral palsy and a learning disability and who came to live with them when her mother passed away.
