Carers Ambassadors

We have four Carers Ambassadors who are part of Carers Voice.

What do the Carers Ambassadors do?

  • Listen to and offer support to fellow Carers
  • Try to find hidden Carers (Carers who don’t necessarily recognise they are Carers and the support there is available for them)
  • Let Carers know about Carers Voice and the Carers Matter Norfolk Service
  • Represent Carers at events and meetings
  • Relay any feedback to Carers Voice about what is working well and what needs improving
  • Feed back progress to Carers
