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.
