A Carer’s Assessment is undertaken by Manchester City Council and is the best way to identify the sorts of support which would be most beneficial to you. You can speak to someone to request a carers assessment by calling their Contact Centre on 0161 234 5001. Carers are entitled to an assessment even if the person they care for doesn’t receive services themselves.
The Carer’s Assessment lets you explain how caring impacts on your health and wellbeing, and helps you consider what would happen if you were unable to care for whatever reason, including developing a Carer’s Emergency Plan.
