Carers UK Norfolk
Carers UK Norfolk provides information for unpaid carers. It was created by Norfolk County Council and the Clinical Commissioning Groups in Norfolk working with the national charity Carers UK. If you are looking for information and support this website includes a range of tools and resources including:
- About Me - an e-learning course to help you identify and find sources of support
- Jointly (Care co-ordination app) - technology to help set up appointments, tasks, and medication for the person you are helping. When asked, 89% of carers agreed that Jointly is a useful tool
- Carers UK guides - essential reading resources
- Links to local resources, sources of information and support
Here’s what some of the carers had to say about the resources available on the Carers UK Norfolk site:
“In caring for someone you can get very lost. The About Me course helps you to stop and think, shows how to lay things out, and calm down.”
“Jointly is an excellent way of keeping everything in one location that can be accessed in real-time by those who need to have access. It saves time ringing round or texting each other to keep up to date.”
To access the support tools on offer visit the Carers UK Norfolk website and register – all you need to enter is your email address.
If you are looking for help to improve your computer and mobile phone skills, courses for a variety of ages and abilities are available in libraries across Norfolk.
