Being a carer can be both incredibly demanding and fulfilling. It is important as a carer that you know your rights, your obligations, and what you are entitled to. Search our guides and directory for detailed advice and useful resources.

We work to improve support, services and recognition for anyone living with the challenges of caring, unpaid, for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. We do this with a UK wide network of quality assured independent partners and through the provision of grants to help carers get the extra help they need to live their own lives.

With locally based Network Partners we are able to support carers in their homes through the provision of replacement care, and in the community with information, advice, emotional support, hands on practical help and access to much needed breaks. We offer specialist services for carers of people of all ages and conditions and a range of individually tailored support and group activities.

Norwood is a forty-five capacity Ipswich care home from voluntary care MHA, dedicated to the challenges faced by individuals diagnosed with a form of dementia.

The purpose-built facility is ideal for allowing carers to make the most of their capabilities, while also being a comfortable and spacious living environment where residents can pursue their personal interests and have their privacy and dignity respected.

We provide information and advice that covers every facet of later life, from helping people find out the benefits they are entitled to claim, to discussing options that help make later life at home more manageable. Our aim is to be the first port of call – the first place that people turn to when they have an age-related need.

We help older people to claim benefits

Together with our national partners and local Age UKs, we help older people to know about and claim the benefits they’re entitled to, such as Carer’s Allowance, Attendance Allowance and Pension Credit.
