A carer is someone who spends a significant proportion of their life providing unpaid support to someone who couldn’t manage without them. This could be caring for a relative, friend or neighbour who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.

If you are a carer and want to find out what support is available, complete the online self referral form.

If you are a professional working with an unpaid carer, or if you know a carer who you think could benefit from speaking to Trafford Carers Centre, you can refer them using the online referral form as long as you have their permission to do so.

If you are a young carer, or know a young carer that needs some help, please use the young carer referral form.

If you’d prefer to speak to someone you can call the Helpline on 0161 848 2400.
