Carterton and surrounding villages is generally regarded as a prosperous area; nevertheless there are people who find themselves in need of assistance. The Carterton Lions Club Welfare Committee is responsible for considering requests for assistance and endeavours to help in all areas of the community. This is made possible by the work done by the Fund Raising Committee.

We also receive requests from individuals and care organisations where basic household items are required, such as a washing machine or cooker, which most of us take for granted, but  please note we are unable to support requests for carpets

Additionally, we work closely with the Citizens Advice Bureau and other organisations who pass on requests for help.  We also act as agents in the Carterton area for The Witney and West Oxfordshire Food Bank and can refer needy individuals to this service where appropriate.

Contributions have been made by the Club to young people to assist them on overseas trips to developing countries where they have taken part in health, educational and community projects. Working within the Lions International Organisation, we donate to help people around the world to improve their quality of life, for example through Water Aid and health programmes, where a modest amount of money can help hundreds of people.

The Welfare Committee reviews all applications for support and recommendations are made to the full Club business meeting for ratification.
