Crisis Prevention Service

Crisis Prevention Service Nottinghamshire County

The Crisis Prevention Service enables the person you care for to be looked after in their home if you have an unforeseen or emergency situation. The service is available to all adult carers (over 18) where the ‘cared for’ person lives in Nottinghamshire (except Nottingham city residents). Some examples of crisis situations where the service could provide support include:

  •  your admission into hospital
  •  you need to attend an unplanned doctor’s appointment
  •  you need to attend an unplanned medical appointment
  •  you have a family emergency, including another family member becoming seriously ill and requires help or attention
  •  there is significant risk to your employment on a particular occasion
  •  the funeral of a friend or close relative.

    This is not a complete list but to give you guidance of the sort of situations where the Crisis Prevention Service could help.
