The Carers Reference Group was organised and chaired by Bright Ideas Nottingham for two years. The Reference Group met every few months to help improve services available to carers in Nottingham. The group meets with workers from the Carers Federation as well as local Councillors, to feed back views and help shape services, policies and strategies affecting carers in the city. Bright Ideas Nottingham recruited new carers and organisations who work with carers and facilitated the writing of a new Terms of Reference with the group.
This work took place from 2014 to 2016.
