Are you an unpaid carer?
Unpaid carers are one of the priority groups that are now being vaccinated. Could this be you?
It is estimated that there are up to 100,000 carers in Norfolk and Waveney, but only 10% of these people are known as carers because many do not claim carers allowance or have it noted on their GP record that they are a carer.
Earlier this month, Norfolk County Council launched a campaign to find Norfolk and Waveney's unknown carers. They are asking for anyone who is the sole or primary carer of an older or disabled person who is clinically vulnerable to COVID-19, parents or primary carers of children and young people who are disable and clinically vulnerable to COVID-19, young carers (aged 16 or over) of people who are elderly or clinically vulnerable, and people caring for someone with severe mental illness to contact Norfolk County Council between now and 31st March to register themselves as a carer.
People can register as a carer online here: http://apps.norfolk.gov.uk/carervax
Or if they are unable to register online, a 24/7 voicemail service is available for people to leave their contact details: 01603 247256
