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.
It would be appreciated if you could please take a few minutes to complete the following short survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SV7FFMS
Young Carers who had attended a musical retreat, held over the last 10 years in France, reunite to reminisce and celebrate the programme coming to an end with staff, other carers and those who were involved in the project.
In the Easter holidays we had a Family Sports day with Sports England! Over 2 hours, we all had a go at athletics, javelin, tennis and basketball. Everyone got to practice their skills and enjoy being active. Sports England are running lots of free events in Nottingham for Young Carers and adults, be sure to check the Nottingham City Council website for free events near you!
As we know, all young carers are courageous and do amazing things every day. This year, we were invited to the Children of Courage Awards to see 4 of our Young Carers receive awards in recognition of their dedication and hard work. The event took place at Notts County Football Ground and everyone was treated to a 3 course lunch before being presented their awards by the Lord Mayor of Nottingham. We didn’t miss the opportunity to stand on the pitch either!
