Suffolk Family Carers Volunteering Project

Suffolk Family Carers is a charity based in Claydon that works with Family Carers across Suffolk, providing support and guidance. A Family Carer is someone of any age whose life is restricted because they are looking after another person who cannot manage without help because of illness, age related frailty, mental health need, substance misuse or disability. Family Carers are not paid and do not always live with the person they care for. They may be caring for a friend, neighbour or relative.

Suffolk Family Carers Information Line is open Monday to Friday, 9am - 4.30pm, and Tuesday, 9am - 7.30pm.  01473 835477.
