Adult Carer Support

Supporting Unpaid Carers

You are an unpaid carer if you support a family member or friend who is ill, disabled, elderly, has mental health issues or substance misuse problems. The support you offer may be emotional or include shopping, cooking, dealing with medication, or attending medical appointments with the person you care for. The person you care for could live with you, in their own home, or even in residential care.

The Carers Federation provides support to unpaid carers through our Carer Champion projects which are delivered in all medical practices across Rushcliffe, Gedling, Broxtowe and Hucknall districts.

These contracts are commissioned by local NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups

For more information about these services please contact Hazel Johnson on 0115 9629314 or
