Rokerfield Resource Centre mental health day support NG17
Nottinghamshire County Council has been consulting on the closure of all three of its mental health day support centres, including Rokerfield Resource Centre in Sutton-in-Ashfield.
The centres help people with serious mental health difficulties, aged 18-65, to maintain and develop independence. They provide activities for people during the day time, often giving respite for their carers.
The council plans to close the centres in order to save money and as a result of the introduction of personal care budgets, which provide service users with money to spend on services of their choice.
