Carers Trust responds to closure of West Norfolk Carers
Responding to the news that West Norfolk Carers is closing, Dominic Carter, Carers Trust's Director of Policy & Public Affairs, said:
“We are very sorry that West Norfolk Carers, part of the Carers Trust network, has been forced to close. The dedicated staff there have provided expert help and advice to countless carers over the past three decades.
“All unpaid carers deserve and sorely need access to support and their need is particularly pressing during the current cost of living crisis. Unfortunately, that financial climate is also causing huge problems for many smaller charities. These pressures have been made more acute still as many local authorities have experienced huge cuts to their budgets, constraining their ability to fund local services. It is vital that decision makers at a local and national level do what they can to stop more essential services like West Norfolk Carers having to shut their doors.”
