Your Right to have a Voice
The Carers Council for Norfolk (CCN) is an independent, user-led charity which puts the carer’s voice at the heart of all it does. It is currently working in partnership with Voluntary Norfolk, FamilyCarersNet and Norfolk & Suffolk Care Support to provide carers services in Norfolk and ensure these services remain carer led at all times.
Carers Council for Norfolk also works in partnership with Healthwatch and Adult Health and Social Care to monitor and evaluate the support services available, and to create policies, strategies and solutions that result in the best possible outcomes for carers in Norfolk and the people they care for.
