What we do
Caring can be extremely complicated. The maze of rights and entitlements can be complicated. Filling in paperwork can be complicated. Trying to organise a break can be complicated. Our feelings about caring can certainly be complicated.
We’re here to make sure that no matter how complicated your query or your experience, you don’t have to care alone.
99% of family carers felt that Suffolk Family carers listened and gave them information and advice to empower them to make informed decisions about their caring role.
We provide innovative services, often ahead of the field. Our work with young carers in now long established and well respected in over 90 schools and colleges across Suffolk. We have support workers in all the hospitals across Suffolk and GP surgeries in West Suffolk to identify and support family carers. We introduced the ‘Carer Friendly Hospital’ award for hospitals to recognise the needs of the family carer alongside the patient. Our work within the sphere of mental health and wellbeing is considered exemplary by family carers and practitioners alike.
