Carers Manchester Locality Partnerships
Carers Manchester North, Central and South Partnerships are a collaboration of voluntary organisations working together to improve the identification of unpaid/unwaged Carers in local communities across Manchester. We work with professionals to improve service responses to Carers and link Carers with services across the overall Carers Pathway. Our aim is to work closely with Integrated Neighbourhood Teams, GP Practices, Primary Care organisations and a range of local organisations to create Carer friendly neighbourhoods and link Carers to activities in their local areas to improve their health and wellbeing.
This enables unpaid Carers in the community to be recognised, receive advice, guidance and support early on in their caring journey. We are also working with diverse communities and BAME organisations to support the development of culturally appropriate services to their community members.
Carers Manchester North Partnership is led by Manchester Carers Centre. 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.
