Supporting those who care for others

Welcome to Carers Voice

Carers Voice is an independent charity representing Carers in Norfolk and Waveney

Carers Voice is an independent charity representing Carers in Norfolk and Waveney.

As a Carer, you are an ‘expert’ through your lived experience of caring and you should be able to have a say in services, policies and decisions that affect you and the people that you care for.

At Carers Voice, we are here to give unpaid Carers a voice in the way their services in Norfolk and Waveney are designed, developed and delivered. We are partners within the Carers Matter Norfolk service. Carers Matter Norfolk is the county-wide support services for unpaid Carers offering support that is personalised to meet what matters to Carers. For more information, please visit www.carersmatternorfolk.org.uk or call the free Advice Line on 0800 083 1148.
