Working with our partners, the Carers Voice Norfolk & Waveney, we campaign to improve the quality of support for Norfolk’s 100,000 carers and the people that they care for, working with healthcare professionals, politicians and the public. Through our campaigning and project work, we make sure that the voice of carers is heard by local government, the NHS and other organisations, ensuring that the decisions affecting the lives of carers have considered what really matters to them.
We do this by identifying and raising awareness of issues affecting carers and the people that they care for. Developing practical solutions to these problems. We co-develop solutions with carers who are ‘experts by experience’. We build support for our ideas and solutions amongst healthcare professionals, politicians and the public; making the change needed to achieve what matters to carers.
On these pages you will find information about our ongoing campaigns and projects; as well as a selection from the past where we have made a real difference. In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be adding information about the Carers Charter our partners at Carers Voice Norfolk & Waveney are leading; a project with local pharmacies to find and support ‘hidden cares’ and our efforts to achieve equality for parent carers of under 18s.
