About Us

The Young Carers & Families Service is a partnership of voluntary sector organisations specialising in supporting carers and young people.  Together we are able to provide support to young carers and their families across Norfolk.

We have a team of Triage & Assessment Workers and Family Care Practitioners who work with families to ensure the right support is put in place to remove or reduce the caring the young carer provides. 

Across Norfolk we work with our partners Youth Workers and Young Carer Support Worker to provide

  • 1:1 and group support
  • fun activities
  • the opportunity to meet other young carers
  • learn new skills
  • wellbeing sessions

The service is commissioned and funded by Norfolk County Council and managed by Voluntary Norfolk.  The Service Manager is Maria Plumb.  

We are also proud to be a member of Sir Norman Lamb’s Coalition for Young People.
