Carers Innovation Fund Survey is now live.

The purpose of this survey is to seek experiences and ideas regarding carers in employment.

A carer is anyone who provides unpaid care and support to a family member, partner or friend due to their disability, health condition, frailty, mental health problem or other health or social care needs.

The survey was designed by a group consisting of carer organisations and councils in Norfolk. We will gather information anonymously and the responses we receive will feed into an application to the Carers Innovation Fund.
