Why we need your help

Walking4Norfolk: Celebrating and supporting unpaid carers
Set up in 2018, Walking4Norfolk was inspired by the 100,000 unpaid carers in Norfolk who provide unpaid support to ill, older or disabled family members, friends or partners. These unsung heroes are thought to save local authority and NHS services an enormous sum, but they face a variety of challenges and can become isolated, with a lack of support. 
To celebrate these carers, former High Sherriff of Norfolk James Bagge decided to walk from his home in Stradsett to Santiago de Compostela (LINK TO SANTIAGO PAGE). The walk raised £70,000 which has been distributed by Norfolk Community Foundation to help change carers’ lives (LINK TO https://www.norfolkfoundation.com/news-events/making-a-difference-to-the-lives-of-carers-in-norfolk/ )
Walking4Norfolk has now evolved to become a wider movement raising awareness and funds to support these amazing people in their invaluable, and often unrecognised and challenging, roles. 
Get involved today and lend your support to these local carers!

Walking4Norfolk: Celebrating and supporting unpaid carers 

Set up in 2018, Walking4Norfolk was inspired by the 100,000 unpaid carers in Norfolk who provide unpaid support to ill, older or disabled family members, friends or partners. These unsung heroes are thought to save local authority and NHS services in Norfolk £500 million a year, but they face many challenges and can become isolated without support. 

This is particularly so in the current climate for Young Carers in Lockdown

Two years ago and to celebrate the unpaid carers more generally former High Sherriff of Norfolk James Bagge decided to walk from his home in Stradsett to Santiago de Compostela. The walk raised £70,000 which has been distributed by Norfolk Community Foundation to help change carers’ lives.

But now in response to a particular need in these troubled times Walking4Norfolk has devised a Lockdown Challenge to raise awareness of the challenges Young Carers are facing and to raise funds for the organisations who are supporting them in their hour of need. 

The funds are collected, managed and distributed by the Norfolk Community Foundation to local voluntary organisations throughout the county who care for and support our carers.

Get involved today and lend your support to this deserving cause!

EVENT: ‘The Lockdown Challenge;  A Virtual Journey from Land’s End to John O’Groats ” in aid of Young Carers: 15 May to sometime in June
