One of our key pieces of work to help carers is to raise awareness in the community with health, social care and education professionals, and employers.
Following on from the success of our Carer Friendly Tick for Education which was developed by young carers as part of our National Lottery-funded Norfolk Young Carers Forum, we are excited to be extending this accreditation programme to three other settings:
- Community groups
- Health organisations
Over the course of 2019, we will be working with carers and organisations from each of these sectors to develop the award scheme.
If your organisation would be keen to be one of the first to work towards these awards and get recognition for how you identify and support carers that you work with, then please email [email protected] or call us on 01480 499090.
