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.

Such lovely news from our friends in Salford today championing young carers. Huge well done!Amazing news today that our young carers in Salford have been recognised at the #heartofsalford awards for partnership & collaboration with The Lowry & @theknottedproject on working together on A Time To Bloom. This was an awards event today by Salford CVS.

A group of young people, who access Gaddum’s, carers services worked for almost a year with The Lowry and The Knotted Project to create and perform a powerful play all focussed around their personal experiences of being a young carer. The play featured hard hitting subjects such as alcohol abuse, bullying, depression, people’s negative perceptions caring for multiple people and bereavement.

A huge thank you to our young people and our partners, this award is for you!
