More about Trafford Carers Centre and carer support
Trafford Carers Centre have been offering support to carers since 1996
Trafford Carers Centre is an independent registered Charity (1102075) that has been supporting unpaid carers looking after someone who lives in the Trafford area since 1996.
At Trafford Carers Centre we support young and adult carers to recognise their own needs, have their voices heard, help with their physical and mental wellbeing and ensure they are fully understood, valued and supported in their caring role.
We support carers by phone, face to face meetings (both in person or via Zoom), support groups, activities and events. Our team also provide regular sessions at venues across Trafford providing emotional and practical support including health checks, benefit advice, advocacy, peer support and counselling.
Trafford Carers Centre is managed by a Board of Trustees who oversee strategic direction and we are proud to be a Network Partner of Carers Trust and member of Carers UK.
