Consultation Events - Have Your Say

As you’ll know from our earlier messages, work is under way to create a Care Association for Norfolk to support you. 

The most important part of this project is consulting widely with the adult social care sector to understand what services you would want from a Care Association. A series of ten consultation events have been planned for early October 2018.  A list of dates and links to the booking system are given below.  

These sessions have been co-designed by the Norfolk Care Association Executive Steering Group, and University of East Anglia and the University of Suffolk. They are all about exploring your ideas on what a Care Association for Norfolk could achieve, how it could help your work and your organisation, and contribute to positive care provision. 

To help get the discussion going, and to give everyone a chance to join in, we are recruiting people who understand adult social care to work as Market Connectors. They will be facilitating discussions using examples from other Care Associations around the country to spark ideas and conversations. 

Following these events, the Universities of East Anglia and Suffolk will analyse your responses and use them to inform an online survey to be sent to all social care providers in Norfolk. The results of the survey together with all the other data gathered will be used to make recommendations to the Executive Steering Group on how a Care Association might be structured, how it might operate and what services it might provide 

We look forward to hearing your views. The Executive Steering Group - Shaping a Care Association for Norfolk
