Updated hands image.png (420 KB)Community Engagement

 

NCA work closely with community organisations across Nottinghamshire. Our aim is to raise awareness of unpaid family Carers who might use that organisation and support the staff to know how to help make their organisation more Carer Friendly.

 

Anyone could be a Carer….

 

It would be fantastic if community organisations were able to talk to Carers about how to access their services and help them to get any support they need.

 

Organisations working with us will be awarded a Carer Friendly Quality Mark in recognition of their support for Carers.

 

This is a free service and we can offer:

    Awareness Training
    Resources for staff
    Resources for Carers
    Information and guidance for signposting


Our Community Engagement Workers would be happy to speak with you about working in partnership to become more Carer Friendly and to potentially to encourage more Carers to access your organisation with confidence.

Nottinghamshire Carers also have other Community Engagement support available:
