Carers are people who look after family, partners or friends who are ill, frail, have a disability or a mental health problem. They may be caring for another adult or be a parent of a disabled child. The care they provide is unpaid.

If someone relies on you for support on a regular basis, or is intending to rely on you, then you can access a range of services to support you in your role as a carer. Contact Nottingham Health and Care Point on 0300 300 3333 if you would like an assessment of your needs. Depending on the outcome of your assessment services may be provided or arranged for the person you care for, with their consent, to help you in your caring role.
