WHO WE ARE
Manchester Carers Centre is a local, independent charity committed to changing the lives of unpaid Carers in Manchester. Our team offers a range of free practical and emotional support services to help make a positive difference to unpaid Carers’ lives in Manchester.
Whether you as a Carer are in crisis, or just need a listening ear, we are here to help. We work to assist you and your families with all of your needs to help you regain control over your lives, and improve your health, wellbeing and overall quality of life.
Manchester Carers Centre has an excellent track record of delivering high quality services to Carers from diverse communities in all Manchester neighbourhoods, spanning over 20 years. We are proud of our ability to reach out to new Carers and support them in an innovative, proactive, and responsive way. Our services demonstrate that when timely and effective help is offered, Carers can be supported before they reach breaking point – giving them the resources and services to enable them to continue caring. We support Carers at all stages in their caring journey, including when caring ends.
Due to Covid-19 all Face to Face activities are suspended until Further Notice but our Carers helpline is still running and waiting to take your call. We are currently exploring other ways we can support Carers so please keep checking our website for updates. You can also find regular updates by liking our Facebook Page or following us on Twitter – just type Manchester Carers Centre in the search box and you’ll find us.
