Manchester Carers Centre

SHORT BREAKS

Manchester Carers Centre recognise that having a short break away from a caring role can have a significant, positive impact on a Carer’s health and wellbeing. The Carers that we work with are often at the heavy end of the caring spectrum, with very limited time to themselves. This is why we offer our Short Breaks Service.

Our Short Breaks Service provides Carers with access to a free, short break away from their caring role, and gives them the opportunity to socialise and connect with other Carers. We aim to make all of our Short Breaks as accessible as possible; we carefully plan our itineraries so that they fit around caring roles well and we consider accessibility requirements carefully.

Some examples of our recent Short Breaks include a visit to the Chatsworth House estate, a canal trip along the Bridgewater canal to Salford Quays, and our Carers Festive Lunch at the Malmaison on Piccadilly. Our Short Breaks Service is very popular with our Carers, and we are delighted to be able to provide such an important service.
