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.

Today the government announced that those on free school meals would get a supermarket voucher for their food - £15 per child. Below are some really great ideas on how to purchase nutritional food on a budget from Porter NutritionToday the government announced that those on free school meals would get a supermarket voucher for their food. £15 per child is not much but it is possible to buy a week's worth of food - not just lunch - for a child with it.

Here is one suggestion as to how. It is not easy to do. It is easier if you have more people in the household to share some items with but I have tried to include everything and not assume people have a store cupboard.

Let me know if you want more information.

Please share so those who get these vouchers have some ideas.
