Norfolk Carers Time for You Short Breaks. The service is flexible and tailored to your needs, enabling you to, for example: take part in an activity or family event, go to a medical, education or work appointment.
The service is for carers aged 16 or over, caring for someone aged 18 or over, and for carers who don’t receive any other funded respite services from Social Care or the NHS.
Norfolk County Council’s Children with Disabilities Short Breaks Service
Young carers and young adult carers can get a break through this service. It provides short breaks and social care support for children and young people who have a disability that severely impacts on their quality of life and that of their carers and family members. Contact Norfolk County Council for details.
Day centres, lunch clubs and day activities provide social contact and a hot meal for the person you care for. Norfolk County Council and the local NHS publish a Norfolk Guide to Care and Support for Adults that includes details of day centres and day services that are available around Norfolk. The guide also contains lots of useful information regarding care and support to enable people to stay independent in their own homes for as long as possible.
Contact Norfolk County Council for a copy or download it from this website.
