  • Save Burman House Residential Care Home
    Message from Jonathan Dunning, Branch Secretary, UNISON Norfolk County: Victory has been achieved in the UNISON led campaign to keep Burman House open. It will now be transformed into a specialist dementia residential care home with 30 beds. Thanks to all 759 of you who signed the UNISON petition which was discussed with both Norfolk County Council and Norse Care. The hundreds who signed showed the support in the local community which we are certain contributed to this decision. To be frank, we have been overwhelmed by the strength of feeling from you the public, employees past and present as well as relatives of those who receive fantastic care at Burman House. That same strength of feeling – backed by the local Parish Council – forced Norfolk County Council and Norse Care to find a way to keep the home open. I hope you can join me in applauding the excellent work done by UNISON members at all levels of Norse Care who have helped ensure that it is the only large care provider in England and Wales to have all its homes graded as ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by official inspectors. These brilliant levels of care made it even harder for the Council to force Norse Care to chase quick savings by closing Burman at the expense of staff, residents and their families. Once again, thank you for signing our petition which has made a real difference.
