Suffolk Family Carers

If you have enjoyed volunteering in your community during lockdown, why not consider volunteering with a local charity? Suffolk Family Carers is based on Hill View Business Park in Old Ipswich Road, Claydon. We provide information, advice, guidance and support for anyone who is caring for a friend, family member or neighbour. The person that they are caring for may be ill, have a disability, a mental health issue or be elderly and frail.

How can you help?
We are looking for more telephone supporters to help us keep in touch with family carers who may be isolated, have a heavy caring role or care for someone who no longer is able to hold a conversation. This role can be carried out from home so is a perfect way to volunteer in the current situation!

What do we offer?
Training and support for your volunteer role, out-of-pocket expenses, the opportunity to meet new people and to make a real difference to the lives of family carers.

Who do I contact?
If you are interested or you would like to find out more, please call 01473 835477 or email us at:
