Norfolk Family Carers receive £10,000

With charities experiencing a shortfall in funding due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Norfolk Freemasons have made a grant to relieve the financial pressure of unpaid carers. Norfolk Family Carers have received £10,000 to help rescope respite groups and maintain opportunities to have fun while building peer support with other young carers in the same situation.

The charity has seen a rise in referrals and young people seeking support placing a further burden on funds, which the grant from Norfolk Freemasons will help to relieve. Head of Norfolk Freemasons Stephen Allen said, “The work of local charities providing practical help and offering emotional support to these selfless young people and their families is something we are proud to support”.
