Free and confidential advice, support and activities for young carers in Nottinghamshire.


Young Carers Notts is a free and confidential service that helps young carers aged 5-17 to take a break and get information, advice and support about caring.

We hold regular events where young carers across the county can meet, make new friends and learn new skills – and try fun activities. 

Advice and information

We offer young people a one-stop-shop for advice about caring. We can help with things like a carers assessment, a carers ID card and planning. 

Events and activities

Young Carers Notts gives young people the chance to have a break and join fun activities, group sessions, short breaks, and social with other young carers.
