Mountfield care home in Millcroft, Norwich is to be refurbished and reopened.
A care home closed when its residents moved to a new £19m care village is to be refurbished and re-opened – to meet the need for places for people with dementia.
And the sale of three other former Norwich care homes has brought in £2m – which care bosses say is being used to improve care.
Four care homes run by Norfolk County Council’s arms-length company Norse Care, shut last year.
The government has announced it will give £2.7m to Norfolk County Council and £1.3m to Suffolk County Council to improve special educational needs and disability (SEND) facilities.
Facilities for some of the most vulnerable children in Norfolk and Suffolk could be bolstered by a £4m investment in special needs education.
The government will, over three years, give Norfolk County Council £2.7m and Suffolk County Council £1.3m to increase school capacity and improve provision for pupils with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
It comes as part of a nationwide investment, worth £215m, to local councils, which can be spent on infrastructure and facilities.
Though councils will be free to invest the funding as they wish, they will be expected to consult with parents, carers and schools and put together a plan on how the money will be spent.
