Towards a Norfolk Care Association - statement from Norfolk County Council
Norfolk County Council has been working with both Norfolk Independent Care (NIC) and Norfolk and Suffolk Care Support Ltd (N&SCS; Ltd) as its strategic partners for some time now on developing the idea of setting up a formal Norfolk Care Association that could build on the excellent services provided by both NIC and N&SCS;.
The next stage in the work will be for the parties to commission a suitable individual or organisation that can carry out a wide ranging consultation with the provider market to determine how providers themselves would wish such an organisation to work and what they would want it to do to support them in delivering sustainable high quality care.
The Council will fund the consultation so there will be no cost to providers.
This presents an excellent opportunity for the whole market to help NIC, N&SCS Ltd and the Council to ensure that any care association for Norfolk does the job we all want it to do.
Please look out for more information and how you can take part over the coming weeks.
