A carer is someone of any age who supports, unwaged, a relative, partner or friend.
The person they care for may need help due to physical or mental illness, disability, frailty or addiction and could not manage without that support.
A carer does not always live with the person they care for, or care for them full time.
You might not think of yourself as a carer, but just as someone’s partner, parent, son, daughter or friend. Recognising that you might be a carer means that you can access support, advice and guidance relevant to your situation.
As a carer you are not alone, there are an estimated 65,000 carers in Manchester and we are here to help you find the right support at the right time.
We are here as the first point of contact, any questions you have no matter how big or small, are just a phone call or email away.
