A Norfolk carers service are holding a workshop to help those looking after family members.

Carers Matter Norfolk are holding the workshop in Long Stratton as part of their free services available to people aged 16+ caring for someone aged 18+.

A spokesperson from Carers Matter Norfolk said: 'It's hugely important to help carers as they spend so much time caring for others that they don't do enough for themselves.'

The event will feature practical demonstrations on safer moving & handling, making hydration fun, safe and fun physical activity for carers and music mirrors, an innovative approach to capturing the memories of people living with memory loss.

Carers Matter Norfolk is a countywide service funded by Norfolk County Council and the NHS to provide support to unpaid carers.
