Welcome to Manchester Carers Network

We support carers in Manchester. Please explore our website, we hope you find it useful. And please send us your feedback to help us improve it.

We are offering a range of workshops and other opportunities for carers to find information and develop their skills.

There are also online resources and carer-to-carer support, helping carers to feel more confident in their caring role.

The programme is funded by Manchester Health and Care Commissioning.

Am I a carer?

A Carer is someone of any age who supports, unwaged, a relative, partner or friend who due to physical or mental illness, disability, frailty or addiction could not manage without that support.

You might think of yourself as the person’s wife/husband/partner, or their son/daughter etc. You might see looking after them as something you just get on with. But recognising you are a carer means you are not alone – there is information and help available.

There are more than forty thousand carers in the city – join us, get the help you need and give carers a voice.

“I know for a fact that I would have gone under without support when I really needed it.”
Gaynor, a carer and now part of Manchester Carers Forum.
