Manchester Carers Centre

SECTION – INFORMATION, ADVICE, 1-1 SUPPORT

Manchester Carers Centre are here to work directly with Carers. Manchester Carers Centre offer a range of information and advice services to unpaid Carers in Manchester.

Our information and advice service provides support on a range of issues including:

  • Assessments of your needs as a Carer
  • Carers Emergency Planning
  • Accessing Respite
  • Your Health and Wellbeing
  • Welfare benefits
  • Available grants to support with your caring role
  • Information on available services in Manchester

Alongside our Carers Telephone Helpline, if you require more intensive support we can arrange to have follow up 1-1 sessions either over the phone or face to face. Our 1-1 sessions allow the space and time to go into the full detail of your caring role and any issues or challenges that you may be experiencing and work through them together. Please note that all our face to face sessions have been suspended until further notice in response to Coronavirus but we are still offering telephone appointments.

Whether you are a Carer in crisis or just need a listening ear, we are here for you. We work to assist you to regain control, improve health, wellbeing, and your overall quality of life.

For information and advice on any aspect of your caring role please call us on our Carers Telephone Helpline: 0161 27 27 27 0 or email us on admin@manchestercarers.org.uk, Monday-Thursday, 9am-4pm
