  • Activities and social events
  • Outreach and drop-in sessions


Professionals working with young people

Young Carers Notts also supports organisations and individuals working with young people to increase identification of young carers and promote the support available to them in the community.

These groups include:

  • Schools and colleges
  • Education providers and youth services
  • GPs and pharmacies
