Support in the NHS
We work in partnership with professionals like you right across Suffolk to ensure family carers receive the best possible information, advice and support when they are caring for someone.
As a professional you may be the first to identify a family carer. This might be from your work in the community, GP surgery or hospital. We are here to ensure you are able to give them all the help and support they need.
We welcome professionals to come and meet with us to find out more about what we do.
You will meet with two of our Advisers who work on our Information Line, to gain an overview of family carers and our services. The sessions are fairly informal and there are lots of opportunities to ask questions to ensure you gain all the information you need.
We hold these sessions at our main base in Claydon (just outside Ipswich).

We offer professional training if you work in health or social care.
