SOUTH NORFOLK MP Richard Bacon joined carers and support organisations at the Carers Week Roadshow which finished its week-long tour of the county at Diss Mere's Mouth on Friday 17 June.

Carers Week is an annual event to raise awareness of carers who look after a sick or disabled relative, partner or friend and the issues that affect them.

There are an estimated six million carers in Britain today, many of whom do not recognise themselves as carers and are not aware of the support on offer.

A wide range of carer support organisations were represented at the Roadshow. These included Norwich & District Carers Forum, Norfolk Carers Agency Partnership and Crossroads.

Mr Bacon said: “Carers make a valuable contribution to our society and there are many of them in South Norfolk. I urge carers to make sure they get all the support they can by contacting any of these organisations which are all keen to help”.
