For Professionals

Do you work in health or social care? We can offer free advice and information over the phone to anyone who is caring for a friend or relative – including families and parent carers. We are also able to support self-funders who may not otherwise be able to access some services. Due to our loss of statutory funding, our support is currently fee-based but we are often able to get out to people’s homes very quickly and offer an in-depth service which is tailored to each individual. Our Family Care Advisers have a wealth of knowledge and experience having worked in the sector for many years. We can help carers to organise practical support, make sense of their options (such as finding paid care), access services and manage finances. We can also provide emotional support, helping carers to better manage the stresses of looking after someone.

Please use the contact form here, email us on info@norfolkfamilycarers.org or call 01603 219924 if you would like to refer someone to us for support.

To date, our service has been rated highly on Healthwatch.
