Online service to offer vital support

An essential support group for carers in Norwich hopes to extend its reach by launching a new website.

The new online site for the Norwich and District Carers' Forum will give carers information about all the help available to them in the county.

The organisation hopes the website, which will go live on December 1, will lead to more carers in Norwich being able to get help and support.

The forum's chief executive David Todd said: “What it will do is give carers access to greater information about services available to them.

“And through our link pages it will given them an idea of what is available for carers in Norfolk. This is an innovative and positive step forward in pushing the social care agenda for health's forgotten partners.â€Â
