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.

Are you looking after someone at the moment? A member of your family? or a friend? Maybe you have a neighbour you like to check in on, someone you do bits and bobs for.

You might not think of yourself as one, but you ARE a carer, and there's support out there for you.

We run workshops and courses for carers, to help you feel confident and secure about what you do, and to feel connected with the community around you.
