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.
City College Norwich has a long-established role in training Norfolks future health and social care workforce, as well supporting the professional development of those already in the sector.
