Carers In Hucknall is a self help group run by and for carers and the people we care for in Hucknall and surrounding areas.
Support, understanding and a warm welcome are guaranteed, whether you’re a carer, disabled, or would just like the company.
We meet at the John Godber Centre on Ogle Street (click for a link to Google Maps) at 1:30-3:30 pm, every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month. We are here to give help and support to all. See our Dates page for more info.
This group can offer you support and signpost you to other useful services, whatever it is that you feel you need. You can talk with people in a similar position to you and make connections with others in your local area.
Each year, we try to run some group activities where everyone gets a chance to go out and let their hair down. One of our favourites is our cream tea boating tour of Nottingham!
Carers in Hucknall was started by Jim Radburn, a carer in Hucknall, in 2003. The group aims to offer support to local carers, and the people they care for, in Hucknall and surrounding areas.
Carers come from all walks of life. They often have no training, no holidays, no fixed hours and no wage. It can be a 24 hour a day, 365 day a year commitment.
Problems might include:
Lack of information. Lack of support. Financial worries. No personal life.
Isolation and frustration. Lack of recognition of the caring role. Carers’ health problems.
Do you recognise your situation here?
If so, why not come along to our next meeting? You will find someone who understands your situation. Who has been through everything you are going through and can offer you support and advice without being judgemental or patronising. So if you would like time out of your busy life, where your voice is going to be heard and your feelings acknowledged… come and join us for a cuppa!
