Our News page will bring you latest news relevant to us and carers. It will also include the Newsletter archive and from these and other sources we will flag up Latest News items for this and the other web pages.


The Carers’ Council  newsletter is a good platform for current issues, news and information and enables carers to be kept up to date and to air their views and professionals to let us know what’s happening.  It’s a handy format to pick up any time and relax with.

The newsletter comes out 4 times a year and digital copies (and paper copies to those without computer access) go out to members and to numerous organisations and groups. Paper copies are sent to all local mental health teams,  Nottinghamshire Healthcare Trust’s departments and other relevant organisations to be available in reception areas for carers and employees.
