Next week the Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board will be launching a Norfolk wide survey to find out if care and nursing homes in Norfolk are LGBT+ compliant and to identify any training and development opportunities within the care/nursing home setting through the responses. If you work or manage a Norfolk care home we would like to hear from you.
