New Service Update
Please be advised that as of 1st September 2020 the adult carers services contract will be delivered by Bridges Outcome Partnerships in partnership with Carers Matter Norfolk. Your main points of contact with the service – the advice line and carer connectors – will not change, however we are working to consolidate and improve our offerings to better support carers in Norfolk. As part of the improvements, we will be migrating our existing data into a new case management system. If you have any queries, do not hesitate to contact NCC at email@example.com.
