Support from Nottinghamshire County Council

There is a range of support available to carers from Nottinghamshire County Council and the NHS. For many services you will need to have a carer's assessment or the person you care for will need a community care assessment.
Use the links below to find out more about the support available to carers. You can also download the 'Do you look after someone?' factsheet which also describes the services available. The leaflet is also available in Arabic, Hungarian, Mandarin, Polish and Urdu.

See our young carers pages for the support we provide to children and young people under the age of 25 who care for others.
