Despite the lifting of government restrictions around social contact, there are still many people in the county who are lonely, unsupported, isolated and digitally excluded and we need your help to get the message out that, if people call the Norfolk County Council call centre we will be able to support them to access services. We are also aware that as people return to work, and the number of community volunteers reduces, a central support will be helpful to a number of people.
More information here, including link to downloading a copy of the postcard for residents that you may know who do not use a computer. There is also a link to a card for carers who may need extra help.
