Signposting

Manchester Carers Centre’s Young Adult Carers service provides tailored support to each individual Young Adult Carer. Where we feel the young person will benefit from additional external support we signpost and make referrals, with their permission. We work closely with a range of partners to ensure Young Adult Carers get the support they require for a range of needs. Some examples of this is counselling services, mental health organisations such as 42nd Street and Connect Support, homelessness organisations or educational or learning opportunities with The Growth Company and many more.

If you are a professional or work within a service that can offer support to Young Adult Carers or would like to support the work that we do, please get in touch by calling Manchester Carers Centre on 0161 27 27 27 0 (Mon-Thurs 10am-1pm) or emailing admin@manchestercarers.org.uk.
