Caring for someone is a full-time job, and having the time and confidence to maintain your own health is challenging. 

We provide a friendly face to help you. 

Research shows how important a carers health is for their own quality of life and the loved one they look after.

In partnership with Cotman Housing Association, we provide a friendly face to help you and the person you care for take part in health activities. This can be lending a hand so you can all take part, or providing company for your loved one while you take a class or burn a couple of miles on the treadmill.

If you are over 18 and care for someone who is aged 50+, get in-touch and we will match you with a Cotman Activity Befriender. If you are living with dementia, there is also the option to have an instructor come to your home.

All About You

"All About You" aims to encourage and support carers of older people to become active by participating or re-engaging in sporting or physical activities they enjoyed prior to having caring responsibilities.

Further support

  • Information and Advice

    We offer free, independent information and advice to help you or a loved one get all the support you need for later life.

  • Volunteering

    If you have the time and skills to offer, we'd be glad of your help to reach more older people in and around Norwich.
