Trafford Carers Centre is an independent registered Charity (1102075) that supports unpaid carers looking after someone who lives in the Trafford area.
Trafford Carers Centre was established in 1996 and is a Network Partner of Carers Trust. We have been offering support to carers for 20 years!
At the Centre we aim to support both 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.
There are an estimated 24,000 people in Trafford supporting someone living with an illness or disability or a mental health need. This is often done out of love or friendship and they do not get paid.
People often don’t recognise themselves as a carer but if you provide support to a friend, partner, relative or neighbour who could not manage without you, then you are a carer and Trafford Carers Centre can help you.
All caring journeys are different, at the Centre we tailor our help and support to each person’s unique situation. All of our services are free of charge or subsidised. We provide our services from a large number of community venues, including Doctor’s surgeries, hospitals and community centres, as well as from our Carers Centre hub on School Road. We can also visit carers in their own homes or near to where they live.
NB: Some of our services have currently been suspended due to the Covid pandemic. Please call our helpline on 0161 848 2400 option 1 for the latest information.
