Carers Support Day The Forum, Norwich, 14 June 10am - 4pm
On Friday 14 June 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.
