A new free information service is up and running in West Norfolk to help direct people to organisations who can help in a number of ways.
Known as the Information, Advice and Representation Service, it will direct you to different services by phone or email.
You can contact the service via the Norfolk Community Advice Network by calling the freephone number 0333 996 8333, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through the Norfolk Advocacy Partnership on 01508 491 210 or email at email@example.com.
Bill Borrett, the councillor responsible for adult social care at scheme funders Norfolk County Council, said: “When people need help and advice, it is vitally important that they can access it quickly and easily. Therefore, Norfolk County Council has commissioned the new Information, Advice and Advocacy Service to ensure people find the right support, when they need it with the maximum of ease.
“Norfolk County Council awarded the contract to deliver the service to Age UK Norfolk and Equal Lives as their combined knowledge and experience will ensure that Norfolk residents are provided with a service that is efficient, and most importantly, effective.”
