Suffolk Family Carers
Suffolk Family Carers provides information, advice, guidance and emotional support to thousands of family carers each year. Many of the team are carers themselves, and are happy to spend time listening to other carers to help them get the solutions they need. The team is available Monday to Friday via telephone and seven days a week via online chat.
There are over 88,000 identified carers in Suffolk, with many not recognising that they are carrying out a caring role. The funding provided through the National Emergencies Trust, through Suffolk Community Foundation, helped the team at Suffolk Family Carers to offer the Problem Solving At Home – Caring For Dementia with Confidence project during the Covid-19 lockdown, combatting a key issue that the coronavirus created.
