On Friday 14 June, 10am-4pm, Norfolk County Council is holding a Carers Support Day at The Forum Norwich to recognise and celebrate the huge contribution that carers play in people’s lives and promote the support that is available to them across Norfolk.
Carers Support Day in Norfolk coincides with Carers Week, a national campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges unpaid carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities throughout the UK.
An estimated 100,000 people in Norfolk provide unpaid care.
That’s around one in nine people. We want carers of all ages to come together as a community, learn about the support available to them and try new activities. We will be filling The Forum with organisations, groups and networks from across Norfolk who can help with the difficulties, stresses and challenges of caring.
We want carers of all ages to come together as a community, learn about the support available to them and try new activities. Throughout the day there will be free-to-try activities and information stands from organisations who support carers.
There is support available to help you personally, emotionally and physically. We will be there if you’d like to come speak to one of our community connectors about anything. Please join us at any time throughout the day to find out more.
