City Carer Support Services

One of the support workers talking to carers We are here to support you if you take care of someone who is receiving care from adult mental health services. Support workers Jude and Emma provide an opportunity for people to talk, be listened to and understood.  

We understand how life changing becoming a carer is. We understand the emotional strain, the responsibility and how isolating and overwhelming it can feel. We realise the important role carers play and we want to ensure that their experiences, concerns and opinions are shared and acknowledged, in line with the Carer Strategy and the Triangle of Care.

We are recovery focused and help carers, family and friends build on their own strengths and aspirations. We also support and deliver behavioural family therapy.

We provide support to individuals and groups of carers and increase access to carers' assessments. Find out more about carers' assessments on NHS Choices.

We work with other services and agencies to help identify carers across Nottingham City and promote carer issues.
