Carers' Community Network

About The Project

 

The Carers’ Community Network will create a bank of Carers’ Buddies, who will connect with Carers living in East Norfolk & Waveney. The aim of the project is to rebuild support networks, which in some cases were lost following the pandemic and its social restrictions. Carers will be supported to develop friendships with other Carers, join peer groups and access work and colunteering opportunities.

 

The Role of a Carers Buddy

Carers’ Buddies may already hold positions within, or be members of, local groups or organisations. The Carers’ Buddies will connect with Carers on a 1:1 basis, including in person, by telephone, and online. Carers’ Buddies will be given the training, guidance, localised information and administrative support to carry out the role. The Carer’s Buddy volunteering role would be ideal for those that wish to upskill within the community care and peer support sector and wish to make a real differance to the lives of Carers in East Norfolk & Waveney.
