A great start to the year we were invited to attend the Parents into Work event at Bulwell Jobcentre on the 16th January 2019. It was an opportunity for us to let people know about the Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) project, we are running. Which is part funded by Nottingham City Council, DWP and the European Union through the European Social Fund (ESP).
The event gave parents who are returning to work access to information and support on:
Identifying their skills and career aims,
CV building and getting online,
Employment opportunities and support with applying for jobs,
Exploring Childcare options.
You can now view the Carers Federation Annual Report for 2017-18.
NHS Nottingham City CCG have commissioned a video animation aimed at citizens to encourage them to attend medical appointments, and to take children and adults they care for to their appointments. The animation is aimed at raising awareness about the consequences of missing appointments and to ensure that children and adults get the medical care that they need.

Nottingham City Council, NHS Nottingham City CCG and the NCSCB have jointly commissioned a video animation to encourage practitioners to identify children as ‘Was Not Brought’ as opposed to ‘Did Not Attend’ when referring to them not being presented at medical appointments.
At Nottinghamshire Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), the Single Point of Access Team are looking at the best way to offer self-referrals. We would like to get this right and offer it in way that works for Young People and their families, and we are therefore seeking your views.

My brother Ben has learning disabilities. When I was younger I just had to watch out for Ben and make sure he didn’t hurt himself or break anything. Now Ben is getting older, bigger and heavier, I have to do more to help him. Dad works away from home and Mum has a bad arm so can’t lift Ben anymore. I have to get up early and help get Ben ready before going to school. Then, when I get home, I sit and play with Ben so he doesn’t get lonely. When it’s time for bed I help Ben get ready and lift him into bed. I love Ben and enjoy spending time with him but it doesn’t give him much time to do the things I’d like to do. Harry, aged 12.
