Manchester Carers Centre

Manchester Carers Centre was established in 1997 as an independent voluntary organisation. We deliver a range of FREE, high quality support services for unpaid Carers in our City. These services include, emotional support, practical help, community drop-ins, respite breaks, social activities, access to grants and training, and a dedicated Young Adult Carers Service for 16-25 year old Carers.

A Carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a friend or family member who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction cannot manage without their support. We understand the invaluable contribution that Carers make to both the people they support and society as a whole. We exist to change Carers lives.

Manchester Carers Centre is an active member of Carers Manchester, which is a partnership of statutory services and voluntary organisations. The partnership includes 18 organisations who support unpaid/unwaged Carers in Manchester and plays a central role in the new Carers Pathway. Manchester Carers Centre is the lead organisation for the Carers Manchester North Partnership. The partnership involves staff from: Alzheimer’s Society, Moodswings, working in partnership with Talbot House, The Fed (Greater Manchester Jewish Community) and North Manchester Black Health Forum.
