The Young Carers Service


The Young Carers Service is funded by Nottinghamshire County Council and the NHS and covers the county of Nottinghamshire.


The service is being run alongside the existing Nottinghamshire Carers Hub.

Young Carers are most likely to provide care for a parent, grandparent, brother or sister, because that person has an illness or disability, mental health problem or problems with addiction to alcohol or drugs.


The service is for Young Carers aged 7 years old to 18. The service offers Young Carers the opportunity to meet in a group with other young carers, have fun, learn new skills and try different activities such as:


  •  Arts & Crafts
  •  Swimming & Canoeing
  •  Bowling & Archery
  •  Paintballing & Laser Quest
  •  Cook & Eat
  •  First Aid Training


The service will support young carers to:  increase their self-esteem, feel more in touch with other young carers, feel more positive about engagement, feel less socially isolated, identify peer support.


To access the Young Carer Service, in the first instance please contact Nottinghamshire County Council and request a Young Carers Assessment on 0300 500 80 80.
