The Carers Matter service in Norfolk has now been refreshed since 1st September to provide additional support to unpaid carers in Norfolk. We are keen to reach out to as many carers as possible to let them know about the changes and encourage them to get in touch. The Carers Matter Norfolk service on behalf of Norfolk County Council now offers Carers assessments, support, advice and information. The advice line is open 7 days a week and can refer to the Community Carer Connector team who can provide one to one information and support.
The refreshed service wants to improve the health and well-being of carers and their capacity to fulfil their caring role. Along with Carers Assessments the service now offers carers breaks, health and wellbeing fund, education and training and a follow up service to check in with carers to ensure they have the support they need.
