Securing high quality services for people in Norfolk with care and support needs, including many of the most vulnerable in our society, is core business for Norfolk County Council. We rely upon a market of providers for the vast majority of those services in which we now invest well over £290m a year. We work with the health and social care sector to deliver our responsibilities under the Care Act to ensure that the increasing demand for care and support services and changing expectations about choices in the type and quality of services that people in Norfolk want can be satisfied.
Since its inception in 2010, The Norfolk & Suffolk Dementia Alliance has successfully been bringing people together to collectively improve the quality of life of people living with dementia and their carers. From the health and care sectors to building the wider dementia friendly community, the alliance has brought in over £5million pounds of investment to support the development and delivery of award-winning innovations across the Dementia Pathway.
Person centred care, supported by better understanding and awareness of dementia, is at the heart of good quality care for people living with the condition and we have devoted much of our activity to improving the competence of the health and care workforce. We are, therefore, delighted to be sponsoring the award for Excellence in Delivering Dementia Care for the fourth consecutive year. Good luck to all the nominees.
