The Age UK Notts Footcare service helps older people who are unable to look after their feet.
It’s essential that we all take good care of our feet in later life. Looking after our feet can lower our risk of having a fall, reduce our risk of infection, and relieve pain.
We work in partnership with CityCare to provide this affordable and accessible footcare service. Our simple nail cutting and basic footcare advice service is delivered by a small team of trained staff and volunteers. The service is for people aged 50+ who have a long-term health condition and do not qualify for NHS podiatry services.
